You no longer “still see“ people now? Why did you stop? Unless you know what you were doing was wrong and selfish. Have you at least sent out condolences to the family members who lost their loved ones? I hope orange suits you."

@Elchapo_gaz added:

"Were there unrests and looting of shops when that happened? Did people lose lives, property because of the missing R500 billion? You are too privileged to understand any of the hardships people go through."
