- Economic Freedom Fighter Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has shared some strong opinions on former President Nelson Mandela
- Ndlozi started the rant on the morning of Thursday, 11 February - 31 years after Mandela's prison release
- Many South Africans have shared that they don't agree with Ndlozi in any way
Economic Freedom Fighters' (EFF) Commissar Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has revealed that he believes former President Nelson Mandela did not nationalise banks and mines and that the 'only thing nationalised was his face on coins and banknotes'.
Ndlozi has been speaking a lot about Mandela since Thursday morning. The opinions and thoughts came through as today marks 31 years since Mandela's release from prison after spending 27 years in jail.
Ndlozi stated that the only thing that people can point to is that Mandela was the first black president but there is nothing to 'show for our freedom'.
Take a look at Ndlozi's tweets below and some responses below:
"You have started with your madness. How is your political school going?"
@Mo_Mokhs responded with:
"The struggle for a black child is enormous. Political & economic freedom is at the forefront, both not easy to liberate. Madiba did his part and passed on the baton. What have you done Mr Ndlozi other than whine?"
"Well, that’s fine in my books he did a whole lot more for this country then keyboard warriors like yourself."
@obakeng_phestus asked in response to the above:
"Simple question, what have you done to better the lives of South Africans? Mandela did his part and wena beside your beautiful hair and ice delivering service, what do you have to offer sir?"
@LilyRozeey shared in response:
"At least he did something, and fought something, whether real/not, wena Doc what have you done? Now that we are here sewenzeni wena besides being a champion complainer."
"A sell-out is a person who told you to insult president Zuma in parliament and then invited him for tea behind your back."
@makumbi_k2 wrote in response:
"Mandela and the ANC sold out this country a long time ago, and he is gone, it’s us who suffering the most while he accumulated the wealth for himself and his family."
"So, according to you, we made a huge mistake by making Mandela our president. You probably wish Juju was old enough back in 1994 to become our president."
"How old were you in 1994 Ndlozi? You were just a toddler to have understood what Nelson Mandela said or didn't say. So keep quiet."
Briefly.co.za previously reported on Ndlozi after he slammed the closing of borders. The Economic Freedom Fighters MP has warned that shutting the border between SA and Zimbabwe could cause a greater disaster than the Covid-19 pandemic itself:
“Our humanity is measured not by how we treat our friends and loved ones. Our humanity is measured by how we treat strangers/foreigners. The SA border crisis during this pandemic is the true test of our humanity. Don’t be inhuman. Open the borders. Lesotho, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Mozambique are us.”
The debate over the popular crossing, known as a corridor to the rest of Africa, was sparked by the imagery of the post showing hundreds awaiting their turn to pass through.
