One more person has reacted to Helen Zille's 'black privilege' and colonialism opinions. This time award-winning author, Zakes Mda, took a moment to share his words of wisdom with Zille on social media.
Ex-Democratic Alliance (DA) leader, Helen Zille, caused a stir on Twitter when she claimed that black privilege meant being able to commit corruption and still remain in government
Since then, Zille has been getting a lot of heat from all over the country. Popular presenter, Pearl Thusi shared how unimpressed she was and even South Africa’s Finance Minister, Tito Mboweni, directed a Tweet at Zille, asking her to “take it easy”.
Another person to react to Zille was the award-winning author and poet, Zakes Mda.
Zakes took a moment to 'school' Zille on colonialism and history and it was quite a frank (and slightly harsh) message.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Zille was responding to a video clip of a passionate speech explaining what white privilege is when Mda thought he'd try and teach her something from his perspective.
Check out Mda's tweet:
It's not clear yet if Zille responded to the lesson.
