Boity Thulo recently weighed in on the ongoing taxi strike which left many commuters stranded. However, her comments received mixed reactions from social media users.
Boity said that the Spar grocery store near her home had only white tellers on duty. She went on to say that this was not something she had seen before but then she realised it was the result of the taxi strike:
"The Spar in our estate only has white tellers today. Which is something I have NEVER seen before. There’s always just one or two at the most. I was soooo confused. Then I remembered the taxi strike. Ya neh."
Her comments caused a heated discussion as some accused the media personality of race-baiting. Twitter user LgmGolden said:
"The reality about our equality in this country. The reality of how the government is failing blacks."
"You know the Spar group is run mostly by Greeks and those guys are quite astute in running their businesses. The family must come and help during hard times."
"Nkosiyam you guys have white tellers?!!"
"We must normalise this."
"Nice! I see race-baiting is one of your specialities."
"Lol, I guess when black people can't, white people must eh?"
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that commuters around Gauteng were left stranded on Monday morning. The taxi industry has rejected a R1.135 billion relief offer from the government and are demanding significantly more - R10 billion. Some commuters who feared losing their jobs walked to work, adamant that their financial desperation outweighs the strain and inconvenience of the situation.
