Khaya Mthethwa was dragged by social media users after he took to Twitter to suggest that President Cyril Ramaphosa should have rather let former President Jacob Zuma deliver the late Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini’s eulogy.

Phrasing it as a question, Mthethwa asked:

“Would it have been wrong if CR asked JZ to do the eulogy? #askingforafriend #Zwelithini”

Social media users were not impressed by his question and quickly took to his comments section to share their thoughts.

“At Mandela’s funeral would it be wrong if then President Zuma asked Thabo Mbeki to do the eulogy since Qunu people were Xhosa speakers? Tribalistic statements.”

Geraldmohlabe said:

“Your tweet smells like tribalism. Why would he have done that? You shouldn't have asked this question in the first place. CR is the president, Zuma is the former president.”

Thabang_one said:

“I'm interested in finding out what prompted this question sir. Imagine is the same was said during Mandela funeral that TM should have been asked to eulogise him. However, I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt that you might have a reason beyond good enough to suggest that...”

MulisaThovhakal said:

“My question is why? The eulogy was well drafted and eloquently delivered.”
