"Why exclude the benefits of apartheid and its privileges?"
Twitter user TACbreaker said:
"I believe in comrades who never forget where the struggle all began... it's comrades who wish to change every black man's life without fear or favour... Zuma tried but was never liked by media in helping a black man get out of the struggle..."
"I was so emotional today at church when those who were there in 1976 shared the brutality they went through. It was worse when the whole congregation sang “Senzeni na?” I never realized how the deepness of that song."
"The way my mother always shares her experiences it is too sad and unbelievable, it was beyond brutality they wanted to get rid of black young people at that time. I am glad she survived to tell her story."
