Egypt protest: Cape Town, Wednesday, 17 July

About 2,000 pro-Mursi protestors marched to parliament in Cape Town to hand over a memorandum expressing concern about the situation in Egypt. The organisers, the Muslim Judicial Council, were disappointed to discover that no state official was present at parliament (which is in recess) to receive the document, which was accepted a day later by the government. The MJC was supporting the SA government and the African Union position that Egypt had experienced a coup, and that Egypt had to put its house in constitutional order.
