In the video, which amassed hundreds of comments, Lux said: "Our ancestral lineage is one."

"Don't worry about all these small boys from other political parties.

Lux's call to action didn't convince South Africans. More people were interested in what happened to his family than in his political views.

@africanacademia said:

"Is he done mourning his whole family, which was massacred that time."

@BBK29_ is still mourning Lux's family:

"Till today we're still waiting for the burial day of his entire family members who succumbed to the cat toy bomb"

@TMNLMNKRL had no time for Nhlanhla:

"Nobody listens to this rubbish."
