Herman Mashaba, Former Mayor of Johannesburg has begun showing up on all forms of social media platforms as he makes efforts to intensify his newly created political party.
In what seems to be a Q&A on Twitter, he recently answered the question that is often in the limelight – “Should we bring back the death penalty?”
One of his followers Tweeted to Mashaba asking if he was in power would he bring back the death penalty. In response, Mashaba verified that it would be something his party would address in the future under the condition of “overwhelming” evidence would be available.
Mashaba has said that the death penalty is something he supports for crimes such as rape and murder.
The death penalty is something I support for rape and murder, where there is overwhelming evidence.— Herman Mashaba (@HermanMashaba) August 18, 2020
It is something I will advocate for, but would require a constitutional amendment in order to do so. https://t.co/LizCcX870m
