- A strange conspiracy theory surrounding the neck-ties of South African politicians has surfaced on social media
- The post included a selection of images of local political figures, past and present, who all appear to be wearing the same tie
- While some of Mzansi’s social media users agreed that the ties could symbolise some kind of secret society, others were sceptical and brushed the idea off as a far-fetched theory
A particularly interesting theory involving the neck-ties of high-up South African political figures has recently been suggested by Mzansi’s social media users.
Twitter user, @_BlackProtector, shared a series of images showing influential SA men, who all seem to be wearing similar ties.
The men wearing the same dark blue ties with a distinctive diamond pattern in the pictures included Thabo Mbeki and Judge Ray Zondo.
@_BlackProtector shared the post and simply asked her followers to “Please RT until we find out what this tie symbolizes”.
Briefly.co.za saw that Mzansi didn’t disappoint when it came to coming up with captivating theories to explain the matching ties.
Many suggested a secret cult or group, such as the Freemasons or the Illuminati.
However, some pointed out that not all the ties were the same, therefore creating a flaw in the conspiracy theory.
Others were simply not convinced by the discussion and brushed the situation off as a coincidence.
