- The clip, which was uploaded by @Sentletse, shows a man who identified himself as Dlamini holding the flag as he walked down an unknown road
- The video received hundreds of comments from upset tweeps who told Dlamini to "hamba"
A bizarre video of a man walking down the road with the old South African flag has managed to upset locals. In the clip that was uploaded by @Sentletse on Twitter, the cameraman can be heard asking the guy to identify himself.
The flag wielding man then says that his name is Piet Dlamini. In the video, he is asked if he knows anything about the flag in his hands. He can then be heard speaking about the attacks on farmers, calling it "bad".
Thereafter Dlamini quickly rushes off after saying in Afrikaans that he is on his way to work. The person behind the camera sounds clearly confused and exasperated by Dlamini's decision to walk around with the controversial flag.
Social media users, who were just as exasperated as the cameraman, shared their opinions on the post which received over 17 000 views. Below are some of those comments.
"If memory serves me correctly, this was the same Dlamini who was saddened by Terreblanche’s death some years ago."
"Dlamini must be taken to a mental institution."
Briefly.co.za also reported that The Economic Freedom Fighters have announced the outcomes of discussions held with Unilever on Thursday with a joint statement on the controversial advert produced by the company.
Both parties agreed that the ad in question, describing African hair as 'dry and damaged', was both 'offensive and racist'. The two parties reached a consensus on revealing the names of those responsible for the image with the statement elaborating that:
"The director involved in the campaign has since left the company and the country. Unilever has made a commitment that following its internal investigations, the necessary disciplinary action will be taken against those remaining in the company in line with its policies."
