- The DA MP Natasha Mazzone is still making headlines in terms of post-matric qualifications
- Former EFF Secretary-General Godrich Gardee tagged Mazzone in a video of him receiving his LLB from Unisa
- The video seemed to strike a nerve with Mazzone who stated that Gardee's qualification got him 'nothing'
Democratic Alliance MP Natasha Mazzone and former Economic Freedom Fighters Secretary-General Godrich Gardee had a bit of a squabble online. Questions were recently raised about Mazzone's post-matric qualifications and Gardee joined in on that.
The former EFF SG shared a video of him receiving his LLB by UNISA in 2018 as he tagged Mazzone in the caption. The DA MP's response to Gardee raised a few concerns for many South Africans who did not think her retaliation was called for.
Mazzone stated that Gardee's qualifications got him 'nothing'. The exchange of words continued between the two and South Africans added their thoughts and opinions.
Take a look at Gardee's tweet and Mazzone's response below:
Take a look at some of the responses left below:
"It got him a political career."
"I would never vote for the DA just for this tweet... So education gets us nothing in her own words."
"It's extremely painful to only have matric only. May you don't even have that matric certificate. You must be investigated."
"Please tell us why education is not important."
Previously, Briefly News reported that social media users will not let Mazzone's qualification debacle rest. Mazzone had repeatedly denied that she had anything more than a matric which has raised eyebrows as a number of DA members don't have tertiary qualifications.
This has become an issue ever since the DA's Western Cape provincial leader and MEC of Public World and Transport Bonginikosi Madikizela was suspended after it had emerged that he'd lied about his qualifications.
Mazzone also lashed out at critics who claimed that she lied about her qualifications. She has in the past claimed that her highest academic qualification is a matric.
However, a Wikipedia article was edited and showed that was an advocate who attended two universities. The entry has since been edited and the advocate removed from her bio.
Wikipedia is an encyclopedia that can be edited by the public and its information is not always accurate.
