- BLF leader, Andile Mngxitama asked Ramaphosa to apoligise to Bushiri at the SONA
- Ramaphosa did not take notice of his antics
- Mzansi laughed telling Mngxitama to 'voetseek'
In the build up to the SONA last night, Black Land First leader, Andile Mngxitama, added his views on what President Cyril Ramaphosa should address in his speech. Mngxitama asserted that Ramaphosa should apologise to Pastor Shepherd Bushiri, who was arrested this month.
Mngxitama believes that the Malawian self-appointed prophet, Bushiri, was targeted because he is a foreign black person. He says his arrest was a xenophobic attack against black people, Briefly.co.za found.
Mngxitama said Ramaphosa should apologise to Bushiri for the abuse that the pastor had suffered in jail. The BLF leader claimed the president needed to show his support for black people.
Shocked and amused by Mngxitama audacity, Mzansi took to social media to share their reactions.
Lawrence Seunane claimed that Mngxitama was simply “sniffing around” the Enlightened Christians’ Church after hearing rumours that the leader, Bushiri, gave fellow religious leader, Pastor Mboro, R1 million.
Another user added that after the address, Mngxitama was going to have a difficult time explaining to Bushiri that Ramaphosa didn’t take the bait.
Some South Africans expressed concern about Mngxitama mental health since being ousted from the EFF and suggested he needs some time off.
Another Twitter user felt that Mzansi has already spent way too much energy discussion Mngxitama antics.
