- The celebratory mood around Mzansi's first-ever woman-owned bank has been overshadowed by the unprofessional reaction of one of its owners
- The business owner has been accused of 'male bashing', sharing a rude and dismissive response to one customer question
- Mzasni social media users took to the comments section, sharing their thoughts on the unfriendly exchange
A local businesswoman's cheeky response to a potential customer has caused a stir on social media. What's more, it seems the male client received the nasty clap-back on the premise of his sex.
Mzansi's first women-owned bank
Twitter user @ndi_shony first shared the inspirational story of Mzansi's first-ever all-women owned bank, YWBN Mutual Bank. His post, however, was not all positive as the young social media user goes on to accuse its female owners of 'bashing men'.

A customer enquires about the cost of shares
It all started when one man enquired about stakes in the company, wondering how the newly formed business came to a price of R10 for each of its shares. He goes on to suggest a price-cut for the shares might be necessary.
Nthabeleng Likotsi, one of the four women who own the bank, was not impressed by the young man's comments and cheekily remarked that he should start his own business if he had so many questions.
"Start your own." she wrote.
Social media reactions
Mzansi social media users were certainly not impressed and questioned the young woman's poor handling of potential customers. Check out some of the comments below:
"The first women-owned bank in the history of South Ah jiki jiki bashing men."
"Women and emotions..."
"She's so much bitter for a business owner. Brands are held accountable every day, imagine Clicks responding like that?"
"She needs a social media manager who will not answer with anger but use professional ethics. It's like me. Here on Twitter, I don't play but I am nice at work."
Another heated exchange
In some more news about customers and management getting into it, Briefly News previously reported that a heated exchange between a rowdy customer and one waiter who wouldn't back down has sparked a social media debate, with Mzansi left asking who's right and who's wrong.
The viral clip
The saucy video was shared online by Twitter user @kulanicool. In the short clip, a waiter approaches the customer who's eating a meal not purchased at the establishment.
Naturally, that's a no-no and the McDonald's employee demands she stops eating the food.
The backlash from social media
While some social media users agree with the disruptive woman, others felt the whole exchange was entirely unnecessary. Check out some of the comments below:
"If I go in with a friend during my lunch from work, they buy a burger and I take out my skhaftin, now I can't eat my skhaftin cos it's not from MacD??"
"Sometimes you have to bend the rules Kulani. So for me I’m gonna blame the McDonald’s employee. She is right according to the disclaimer but in this case she could have bent the rules because her client bought food inside McDonald’s."
@Dman_zn hilariously commented:
"That Chicken Licken lady is wrong, even I wasn't allowed to eat my gwinya in the taxi, lapho it was still warm cabanga."
"No!!! That’s not how it works, @ your house you are more than welcome to eat anything in peace. But when you are at KFC, you eat KFC, when you are at McDonald’s, you eat McDonald’s."
