The person claims that they work 10 hour shifts and that they are not allowed to use to toilets because they are reserved for white people.

Twitter reacted in its usual manner with some people supporting the post and others who questioned that if the working conditions are so bad they don't just quit.

South Africa has strict labour laws which protect workers rights. They are enshrined in the Basic Conditions of Employment Act and discriminatory practices such as white only toilets are prohibited by the Constitution.

Man's Not Barry Roux has recently landed in hot water after posting a Tweet alleging that National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete had a number of business interests which she failed to declare to parliament. She is planning on taking legal actions against those people circulating the tweets.

The claims have been labeled as spurious and outrageous.
