One of the Esidimeni committee leaders Andrew Pietersen said all the concerned families condemned the display of their loved ones’ names without their consent and prior knowledge.
“Although there are diverse views among the families, it is my opinion most families feel the context in which the names are displayed for political self-aggrandisement is disrespectful and contrary to the spirit of Ubuntu even though some family members pointed o the culprits of these criminal deeds are still at large under the ANC government,” said Pietersen.
He added the committee would meet lobby group Section 27 on Monday to discuss the way forward.
Meanwhile, DA spokesperson Solly Malatsi said there was nothing wrong with the billboard. He said the purpose was to pay tribute to South Africans who lost their lives through a series of actions by the ANC-led government.
