Makhosi Khoza slammed Mmusi Maimane's 'blackness' after the DA leader partook in a couple's lobola negotiations over the weekend.
On Saturday, former ANC politician Makhosi Khoza questioned Maimane's blackness after he posted a photo of himself drinking umqombothi during a couple's lobola negotiations.
Briefly.co.za previously reported Maimane helped a couple with their lobola negotiations and it sparked quite the debate on Twitter.
Khoza was amongst many to give her opinion on the photo, and it was obvious she was not a fan.
"Oh! Poor Mmusi trying hard to be ‘black’. Maimane blackness pursuit is foreign to me.Umuqombothi is definitely not in my definition. Mine features one of the earliest Ethiopian philosophers, Zera Yacob & Amilcar Cabral, a deep thinker living ahead of his time," she wrote.
However, her post sparked a reaction from Maimane himself who made sure she knows he was not "pursuing blackness".
Maimane wrote: "Here is the thing, I’m not pursuing blackness, I just am. I’m not pursuing being AFRICAN, I just am. If you are still pursuing, perhaps you can tell us, what you are now? The effort to subjectively determine what it is to be black, is the very tool those who oppress, use."
