Some 3,000 people participated in South Africa’s LGBTQ Pride Parade on Saturday, the country’s first after celebrations were cancelled for two consecutive years due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, officials in the US had warned of a possible terror attack in Johannesburg’s Sandton district, an upmarket suburb in the capital. Despite the warning, the festivities went ahead under a large police presence while officials in South Africa advised attendees that it would be safe to march. South Africa’s President Cyril Ramaphosa criticised the US for causing unnecessary panic without providing significant evidence to verify their warning. “Up to this point, we do not have evidence on the table of the thing that has been said,” he said.
