Black people, so long as all your businesses are still on the streets, and not in the malls…
YOU ARE NOT YET IN BUSINESS!
Ntsiki is speaking about very important issues that affect Black people.— Nel Khumalo🇿🇦 (@SneNdlovuSA) March 29, 2020
But it will be the very same Black people who will be dissing and mocking her.

Ntsiki Mazwai is the only black celebrity that is to be trusted. She’s been one of us from the beginning. And we will continue defending her till the end.— Coronavirus (@DjNewAfrica) March 29, 2020
The same people who wanted President Cyril Ramaphosa to lockdown SA are now the very same people who are saying Ntsiki Mazwai is correct. Kanti nifunani?? Hai niyanyanyisa man! pic.twitter.com/dIi2NT0xc1— Nolwazi Mabaleka (@Makhumalo_Nolly) March 29, 2020
Yesterday Spain rolled out 832ans USA over 400 dead bodies in 24 hours, I understand what the President is trying to do, even after Ntsiki’s empty letter, I rather be a living dog than a dead lion, I STAND WITH MR PRESIDENT 💪🏾 pic.twitter.com/UYscDq6gIm— Chair of Chairs. (@zienyce) March 29, 2020
Can Ntsiki write a second letter of solutions.. Advise the president on how the spread of covid19 can be limited. Can she do that? If not, she can go to the nearest bush and hang herself! 😏😩 #Day3 #lockDownSouthAfrica pic.twitter.com/fMNjoogQo9— Tebogo_Light 🏳️🌈🌈 (@TebogoN_Kotsedi) March 29, 2020
