Pearl Thusi planning to organize a peaceful protest against police brutality


Pearl Thusi is on a mission to organize a peaceful protest against police brutality and injustice within the country and therefore the world at large. The actress and businesswoman have taken to social media to ask Mzansi for help in producing the civil disobedience as she has never organized it before.

“I’ve never organized a peaceful protest/march – if (you) know anyone who does please contact me and let’s make it happen.”


The recent death of African American George Floyd has sparked Black Lives Matter protests across the planet. The demonstrations began in Minneapolis following George’s death after a white policeman knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes.

Another matter that has sparked outrage on social media is that of local man, Collins Khosa, who died after an altercation with SA National soldiers. Mzansi tweeps have demanded justice for Collins using the hashtag #JusticeForCollinsKhosa.


Pearl asked local citizens what they were getting to do to voice their concerns about racism and police brutality “over and above posting”. “And as South Africans, over and above posting/creating awareness- are there any plans to protest /speak out on how our police killed people?”

A social media user tried to influence Pearl to not organize the protest by reminding her about the xenophobic attacks that ravaged the country a couple of months back. “Are you suggesting we ignore all problems? We were divided in opinion thereon matter, sad reality. Are you saying the police should use brutal force on its own people because they harmed foreign nationals? Xenophobia is disgusting, so is police brutality. They both must be addressed,”


The stunner also questioned whether any world leaders had spoken out against the treatment of protesters within the US. “Have any world leaders (outside of America ) spoken out against or trying to require action to protect/assist African Americans/protesters?”
