Ayanda posted a video asking her followers to help her understand why children saw nothing wrong with being intimate with one another in front of elders. The actress went on to question where parents went wrong.

"When we leave home, our villages and townships, do we just leave all the home training, respect and values there as black people? Does that mean we forget who we are to adopt all the Western ways, even the silly ones?"

She went on to say that she was shocked to see young children holding each other and kissing without a care in the world. The actress said she grew up in a time when such behaviour was hidden from elders out of respect.

"Kids of today just do it in front of everyone"

She then told a story of how she once saw a child messing around with a boyfriend in public and when she went to tell her parents, they were not interested.

The actress directly addressed the kids by saying “respect your elders” and concluded by saying that if ever any of her followers saw any of her own children messing around in public, they were more than welcome to stop their cars and beat them on sight.
