- Ntsiki Mazwai took to social media to slam local men
- She said South African men were the reason the country would never have a female president
- Her controversial comments were met with backlash from some men
Ntsiki Mazwai is once again ruffling feathers. This time, her latest victims are South African men. The opinionated poet took to social media to explain why South Africa would never have a female president. She blasted Mzansi men and blamed them for their backward and 'barbarian' mentality.
According to her post on social media, Ntsiki believes that SA men are responsible for the sabotage of female empowerment. She went further by saying that white males in Europe have female presidents but South Africa remains stuck in the past because of its men who are "toxic barbarians".
Her opinion was not well-received by Mzansi men, who slammed her sentiments.
Twitter user SanzaMtolo said:
"South African women can never lead a nation, nobody want to be led by a person who portrays to be something they are not. Secondly there too many slay queens, you guys are liars and cheat more than men. Thirdly ningathengisa icountry just for a holiday in Dubai."
"Yes, let's blame men for everything. But I also know women who doesn't support this idea... makes me wonder."
"We're not white men, and no one is preventing women from opening up their own political parties and running for presidency. It's not "Men" who don't want them to lead, stop giving men credit they don't deserve. This is a free country with intelligent women. Haba batle honka lead."
Others agreed with her thoughts that men are the problem, like Twitter user hleaux, who said:
" 'Will never' is a very long time. Women once sat in thrones and I think it'll happen again. Maybe not in our lifetime. We, black men, need centuries of healing, therapy and self-knowledge. Being a woman now is like being black twice in the 1700s".
