Mzansi celebs have taken to social media to share their views on the Democratic Alliance's (DA) stance on the recent developments at Brackenfell High School.
The DA recently took to social media to slam the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) for allegedly trying to "bend the society to its will" and its interference at the high school. The EFF has been protesting against alleged racism at Brackenfell.
Parents confronted the protesters and an altercation broke out between the two parties. Snaps and clips showing the violence that took place have been trending on social media. The DA recently took to Twitter and wrote:
"We condemn in the strongest terms the ongoing threatening attempts by the EFF to bend society to its will by interfering where it has absolutely no business to be. #BrackenfellHigh."
The DA's tweet rubbed some of Mzansi's celebs the wrong way. Briefly.co.za takes a look at three entertainers who have reacted to the DA's views on the matter.
1. Actress Dineo Langa
"These are NOT the people to vote for in any election no matter how many black people they try use to feign inclusion. This is a racist party! Can't be bothered to condemn violence because that is manner in which they intend to rule should they ever even smell the opportunity!"
2. Radio personality Anele Mdoda
"Wait guys, so you really don't see ANYTHING wrong with a matric dance for net blankes? Just white kids. Nothing in you says okay...okay, that's now ABSURD."
3. Comedian Nina Hastie
"With all due respect, please go start your own country. Because this is a country for ALL SOUTH AFRICANS, and if you’re not interested in creating a country where we can ALL live with DIGNITY - go find a place where you can go hit each other with sticks."
Some of Mzansi's social media users have also shared their views on the DA's post. Check some of their comments below:
"But why don't you condemn the violence by the parents too? We know which lives matter for the DA."
"That is why I will never understand a person of colour who votes for this party."
"But it was a peaceful protest not intending to harm anyone or anything for that matter. See how angry you are though?"
In related news, Briefly.co.za reported that the parent who was arrested for firing an imitation gun outside Brackenfell High School has appeared in court and was released on warning. 39-year-old Jaco Pretorius made a brief appearance in Kuils River Magistrate's Court in Cape Town.
The incident with the imitation gun occurred earlier this week when parents, members of the public and the EFF clashed outside the school.
In other entertainment news, Briefly.co.za has reported that Da L.E.S trended on social after a troll tried to shade his contribution to the Mzansi hip-hop scene. Mzansi tweeps defended the rapper from the naysayer who tried to drag him for not doing anything for the South African genre of sounds.
The naysayer took to Twitter on Tuesday, 10 November and asked Mzansi what impact the musician has had on shaping the ever-growing Mzansi hip-hop scene. The troll @i_iamkhanyi asked: "Let's be honest, what did Da Les give us?!?"
Tweeps flooded @i_iamkhanyi's comment section to defend the North God. They were indeed honest with their answers as she had asked. They told her a lot of good things that Da L.E.S has done to change the game.
Some tweeps mentioned that L.E.S made Ama Kip Kip T-shirts and All White Parties fashionable. Some peeps shared some of the big songs that the Tippy Toes hitmaker has dropped.
