The Clicks Advert Outrage is not going to rest anytime soon. As many influential figures weigh in on the matter the more riled up people are getting with regards to this matter.
Julius Malema and EFF’s stance on the Clicks advert to not allow them to open has the political arena now vocal about it. Many seemed to be concerned why only EFF had spoken on this matter and even D.A spoke to fight EFF but the ANC’s silence had them confused.
Thuli Mdonsela who has long since been considered the conscience of South Africa ended up being attacked after airing her views. She called out EFF as being ‘Fascism Extortionists’ as they were prohibiting shoppers from exercising their right to shop.
She further expressed concern over the clicks’ workers’ livelihood as they are affected by EFF’s move. She further questioned if EFF would be able to pay their salaries. Watch the video below:
It only had to take a Stellenbosch job and a white boyfriend for someone who grew up poor in Rural Kwa Zulu under apartheid brutality to lose Black Consciousness. Thuli Madonsela you are a disgrace to Black Nation. pic.twitter.com/INGJz2rhY8

Many reacted on twitter angered by Thuli’s opinion as they felt she is supporting racism. However, few came to her defense and shared similar sentiments to hers.
The likes of Thuli Madonsela, are the type that makes white people comfortable because they know they’ll forever justify their stupid racist remarks. They will never speak out about the injustices black people face. They are the type to tell you “they didn’t mean it that way”! 🤦🏾♀️

People like Thuli Madonsela are not needed in our society, if it was up to her she would bring back apartheid
