"True, he better cut ties altogether and form a new organisation with us together with you and @djsbu and also with the likes of @mkhulunsingiza and other African spiritual brothers and sisters, an organisation like AfriForum that will be for Africans generally."

@wellmak9 said:

"This is smart, Nhlanhla. Your supporters in dudula were very angry because most of them expected perks of freebies... they thought when @NkuliMbundu removed foreigners from the hawkers' markets in Joburg CBD they'll just march in and reap the benefits. They are not aware of legalities."

@makhanip said:

"It's not practical to have all foreigners leave the country, however, SAn nationals must be put first in all spheres and sectors of the economy, no compromise."
