- Ntsiki Mazwai has accused the Democratic Alliance of being a racist political party
- The poet took to social media to share her thoughts and it was clear that she stood firmly behind her statement
- Social media users weighed in on her opinion and many seemed to agree that the 'blue party' had dubious ways
Ntsiki Mazwai is not one to mince her words and she held nothing back when she slammed the Democratic Alliance recently. The poet called the organisation racist for their stance in the ongoing Clicks ethnic hair debacle.
Taking to her favourite site, Twitter, the media personality shared her thoughts about the political party.
She posted: "DA is racist."
The post blew up with over 900 likes as social media users sharing their thoughts about the political party. Many agreed with Ntsiki and said that given their recent comments, the party was not even trying to hide their ideologies.
Twitter user Mandiebala said:
"We need to be bold in saying it."
"They can't even hide it."
"Always has been and always will be."
"Even more heartbreaking are the black people who continue to vote for them."
"In any racial issues, it's either they press charges on the black guys or keep quiet and say we should move on,"
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that Ntsiki Mazwai has taken to social media to share that she is considering staging a march against Clicks stores over their recent racist advert. The poet said that she would only invite black celebrities who wear their natural hair.
The advert that has caused uproar suggested that ethnic hair is "dry and damaged". It has resulted in protest action at Clicks stores across the country, led by the EFF.
Poet Ntsiki Mazwai has also joined in on the action. However, Ntsiki wants her march to be exclusively for those with natural hair. Taking to Twitter, she posted:
"I'm going to do a protest march... WE WANT TO SEE BLACK CELEBS IN THEIR REAL HAIR!!! They are brainwashing the black girl with their insecurities."
Social media users had mixed reactions to her announcement. Twitter user MeYoRichAunt said: "Just say you hate wigs and weaves and keep it moving."
Magwaza_mdu said: "Yeah woman, its time to take your weaves off."
Vintagemshazi said: "I have fake hair, I don't wanna lie. I understand what you saying and I fully agree with you. I think now is the time to change the narrative. Kids are growing up seeing us wearing these hair automatically to them it means that's where beauty is. I will change for the better."
