"But those people employ more than 100 people, how many have you employed so far since enough is enough?"
"Nota slowly degrading into a Ntsiki Mazwai, amazing talent going to waste because of hatred…"
"Lekau has created so many jobs for black people. I think this is unfair on him. That dude is all about creating jobs. I'm sure in the long run when he's built the business up to that level he will start manufacturing locally."
"Cheap labour is profitable for business. A lot of companies manufacturers their products in China. Why are you only singling out Bathu and Drip, just because they are owned by black persons?"
"You are weird! Which company in its infancy (first 10 years) started out owning its means of production and logistics unless of course it was a beneficiary of white privilege??? So people don’t get to start somewhere with you? Lol."
