Angry Backlash For Zim Leader Wishing SA Well

Angry Backlash For Zim Leader Wishing SA Well
Mmusi Maimane

It looks like some South Africans are sick of other Africans telling them how to deal with the unrest and ensuing looting sparked by the #FreeZuma campaign.

In the land of Nelson Mandela, some are peeved that their African brothers are “looking at a speck in their eye when they do not notice the log in their own eye”.

Zimbabwe’s President Emmerson Mnangagwa sparked an angry response when he tweeted: “On behalf of all Zimbabweans, both at home and abroad, we wish that the current challenges plaguing our South African brothers and sisters are resolved peacefully.

“Only when there is peace in South Africa, is there peace in our region.”

Mmusi Maimane responded: “Of all people you must shut up the most. You have been brutally killing civilians for 41 years.

“You know nothing of peace and everything about violence. Thula Mnangagwa …”

In another tweet, the former DA leader said: “South Africa needs no advice about peace from the biggest thug in the region. The reigning champion of oppression in SADC. Sies.”

Many other nasty exchanges between the brothers from the north and the south are happening on social media regarding the looting.
