Business woman Wendy Luhabe took to Twitter to share her views on the work ethics post apartheid.
Luhabe started her career out during the apartheid times and she believes the work ethic was much better pre-1994 than it is now under the ANC's reign.
"#Reflections. I grew up and started my career under Apartheid and we had a much better work ethic,we were responsible for our lives understandably...these attributes have been replaced by a culture of Entitlement and dependency since we became a Democracy," she captioned the post on Twitter.
Briefly.co.za gathered the post sparked mixed reactions on social media. However, many disagreed with the businesswoman, adding her tweet was cruel.
Clive Simpkins, who goes by the Twitter handle @clivesimpkins, wrote: "This is a cruel generalization. I believe many black families suffer from Apartheid-induced PTSD. Many are trapped in shacks and a grinding poverty cycle, with only piece work as an option."
Nokuthula Ledwaba, @NoxNonozi, added: "That time we’re trying to work hard in a system that spits in our faces all the damn time. Still we get up and try. Before you label us, come to our side of town. Your tweet cut so deep. It’s cruel too."
