South Africa: the man who walked 321km for harmony

Mr. Duncan Nyawo is a teacher by profession who is troubled by a few things deep in his soul, and this caused him to walk from Nelspruit to Pretoria which is about 321 km just to deliver a message of peace and hope to the Presidency at Union Buildings in South Africa.

His memorandum covered particular issues; stop attacking white farmers; stop threatening the white people of South Africa by saying they must pack their bags and go!; stop defacing statues – to mention but a few.

When interviewed Mr. Nyawo said: South Africa needs whites,  Chinese, coloureds, blacks whatever. Therefore, let us live together as we need one another.

This one-man show was fully supported by Africa Forum Youth Leader Mr. Henke Maree; who said they have supported Mr. Duncan Nyawo from the beginning by providing him the likes of water and other needs. However, most people interviewed with regard to this one-man show peace walk were taken by surprise in the way in which Duncan has become bold enough to tell some hard truths about what this country is going through.
