Mbuyiseni Ndlozi shared his views on the hype around the Springbok team in Parliament on Tuesday and it rocked the boat once more.

The Economic Freedom Fighter national spokesperson spoke during a debate on a motion to congratulate the rugby team, commenting:

"Because the Springbok is a sign that cannot be whitewashed, it stands in parallel continuity with Die Stem entrenching white supremacy in our society. That is why the rugby team in question is white-dominated. It is a perfect reflection that white people have successfully resisted change in our society for 25 years."


IOL reports that Ndlozi claimed calls to rally during celebrations was a form of collective abuse against black people, who he feels are being asked to approve of a symbol of white supremacy:

"Out there, people say what is happening is racial unity on the streets, but the truth is out there is (sic) scores of black people extending they're exploited, marginalised, scandalised and brutalised humanity to a white-dominated team. the white community to this day has not recognised the humanity of black people."

Turning his comments towards captain Siya Kolisi, Ndlozi said the Springbok head needed to go to a white school in order to be accepted.

The Red Beret encouraged the nation to turn against the abuse the ruling party is allegedly subjecting them to:

"We, therefore, call on black people to reject the racial abuse that the ANC government is subjecting us to. It is a collective emotional abuse. This parade is a complete abuse of our people. No racial equality until the land comes back, no racial unity until [there is] equality and black people are paid the same as white people."

Briefly.co.za reported that Ndlozi's less than amused reaction to the team's success in Japan had been met with retaliation by citizens.
