- Ntsiki and Thandiswa Mazwai have joined their voices in calling out South Africans for their love of booze
- In two separate social media posts, both siblings cautioned people of Mzansi to not be distracted by the re-opening of alcohol
- This is one of the rare occasions where the Mazwai sisters have been in alignment with their views in public
The Mazwai sisters have taken to social media to slam the abuse of alcohol by Mzansi peeps. In two separate posts, Thandiswa and Ntsiki Mazwai shared their thoughts on the re-opening of the liquor industry and the alleged motives behind it.
Ntsiki believes that the booze will soon distract South Africans from pressing issues. She posted:
“I hope alcohol wasn't used to distract us from #PhoenixMassacre...Was it even mentioned?”
Her sister shared similar views in a separate post, shared on her personal social media account.
“Also...With the way alcohol affects our society and how it has become a part of the hopelessness and depression, we should really MAKE THE REVOLUTIONARY DECISION TO STAY SOBER. Andithi singaseli but masingabi ngamanxila bazala. #dontfightme”
Thandiswa doesn’t often make divisive statements but it seems she felt strongly enough about this to take a stand.
It is also worth noting that this is one of the rare instances where Ntsiki’s family members have aligned themselves with her views publicly.
Ntsiki Mazwai slams family members for not protecting her from the public
The poet has previously blasted her family for failing to defend her in public.
Ntsiki Mazwai was not impressed with her family for not defending her when people drag her online. Zizo Tshwete had been preaching the gospel on social media and some people were not really sure about her intentions. Zizo's husband, Mayihlome Tshwete defended her from social media bullies online and said that she had always had the gift of preaching, she just chose to use it in a different way. This made Ntsiki question her own family for never coming to her rescue.
Ntsiki is quite controversial and has made many comments in the past about various issues. This is not always received well by Mzansi social media users who have said that she's just looking for a fight all the time.
