|Sipho Singiswa's only claim to fame is being the hubby of Gillian Schutte|

According to Media for Justice the LWB Gillian Schutte’s husband and former Robben Island inmate, Sipho Singiswa has been filming the student protest since 2015.
They say that: “Because of his political background and his ongoing activism against the injustices meted out by what he describes as “a corrupt state which is reduced to managing white monopoly capital and protecting white interests and their own shares,” Singiswa feels immense solidarity and resonance with the students involved in the uprising.”
Singiswa, in his own words, was apparently one of the youngest “political prisoners” on Robben Island and was arrested for student protests in Gugulethu in 1976 and spent times in and out of solitary confinement and tortured by the Apartheid inquisition by having to stand on a brick for hours, being water boarded with an old white lady’s panties over his face, etc, blah, blah, and bullshit.
Nevertheless, Sipho Singiswa feels that he needs to “continue to struggle against a system that aims to rob them of their right to a free education and a positive future”.
Of course, Sipho is an unsuccessful, non prize-winning documentary film maker today who sells his bullshit propaganda movies to the highest bidder whilst monthly cashing his ANC check for being in the Robben Island inner circle, but last week, whilst filming the Wits University student protests, Sipho Singaswa was baton charged and beaten to a pulp by Zuma’s goons, the SA Police Services.
Couldn’t have happened to a better man, was my first thought.
According to eye witnesses the poor guy was just clutching and trying to protect his camera and whilst the police moered seven types of shit out of him with their tonfa batons, he was squealing like a pig and crying like a baby. Ironically the police were all black and spoke to him in Afrikaans and Xhosa asking him what he was doing and why he was filming. He is currently recovering from his injuries smoking dagga at his house in Edenvale with white wifey Gillian and 16yo half white son Kai.
Heavy weight of whiteness??? Excuse me, but Whites only make out about 9% of the population. What on God’s earth is he refereeing to? How does he intent to make this 9% white weight lighter? Kill his wife? One can only speculate that this idea of “not being able to breathe under the heavy weight of whiteness” flashed through his brain whilst his heavy arsed white wife Gillian was squatting on his face.
Now try to get that visual thought out of your brain for the rest of the day. Eeeuuuwwhh. Ga-poe.
Nevertheless, according to Sipho Singiswa, the students are little angels, well disciplined, not aggressive, non violent and “they caucus and organise and debate with great depth and intellect.”
Sipho says, “It is the police or the security guards who are the aggressors and violate the student’s right to protest peacefully and not the other way round. In fact I cannot say I have once witnessed the students attacking the security or the police for no reason.”
Apparently, according to Sipho, the students only throw stones and burn buildings in retaliation to police brutality. As he says, “It is not the first call – it is the last resort.”
A bit different to the way the main stream media portrays the violence don’t you think?
Nevertheless, Sipho is currently busy editing an excellent documentary for us on how he was beaten up by Zuma’s goons. I can hardly wait to see it. In fact I think I won’t be able to sleep until its release.
