Makhosi Khoza has publicly apologised to Mmusi Maimane after she attacked his 'blackness' in a tweet Saturday.
The former ANC politician has taken to social media to apologise to Maimane after she said he was "trying to hard to be black".
Khoza said she realised how her comment might have seemed as a personal attack and she continued by saying she's sorry.
"Subsequent to my tweet yesterday about Mmusi Maimane, I understand why my comment was seen as a personal attack on his person. This was not my intention and accordingly, I apologise to Mmusi for this. Read Native Beer Act 1908 & OUTA statement," he official apology read.
Khoza added in another post that her tweet about the Democratic Alliance leader could have been taken out of contexts.
Briefly.co.za previously reported Khoza took shots at the "poor" DA leader after he shared a photo of himself drinking umuqombothi while helping a couple with their lobola negotiations.
Although she apologised for her tweet, social media users were not ready to let it go just yet.
Thulani Skosana, who goes by the Twitter handle @thulaniskosana3, commented: "Upon reflection the only thing worth realizing is that you ought to apologize unequivocally to Mmusi for insulting him for no reason whatsover& further more apologize to the general public esp those who regard you highly!your tweet was totally irrelevant, unjustified&uncalled for."
