"Your father embodies the aspirations of the poor. He introduced free education that has been deliberately UNFUNDED by the current administration. The facts speak for themselves. Be strong and be hopeful, I see the greater good in the horizon for the poor. Amandla!!!!"

@MlombiSisamkele said:

"Why using poor people to fight your battles but you never shared a cent with them? Why you don’t provide for the poor because you too have the money?"

@bmrian said:

"Vele uthule. You and your family crated more unemployment!"

@i_mohale said:

"The useless 9 years when the Guptas were governing this country created a big mess. It will take this country long before we recover. The former Proxy President gave a lot of chances to the foreign handlers. Eish, our beloved country! It is hard to reverse the Gupta mess. Eish!"
