When the South African rugby team emerged victorious over the Welsh boys this Sunday, people across the country celebrated the news. Celebrities, politicians and even President Cyril Ramaphosa congratulated the Boks!
However, controversial media personality Ntsiki Mazwai was not among the jubilant fans as she took to Twitter to voice her opinion over the game. The star said the team reminded her of apartheid and that people shouldn’t be celebrating.
“I find our rugby team to be an apartheid trigger… I can’t celebrate the victory of white domination using a black female CEO,” she tweeted.

Tweeps accused the Qhawe singer of always being quick to complain with no solutions offered. @KringThemba tweeted: When there are no changes made you complain and when changes are made you still complain. If the position was held by a white person you’d complain and now is held by a black person, more so a black female but you still complain.
Ntsiki umephi kahle kahle? When there are no changes made u complain & when changes are made u still complain. If the position was held by a white person you’d complain and now is held by a black person more so a black female bt u still complain.

When asked what she thinks the solution could be, Ntsiki said she wants the whole rugby industry to be investigated to understand how “white domination” happens and for it to be restructured.
An enquiry and commission into the rugby industry. I want to understand how things work and how this coincidence of white domination happens. I need it to be unpacked- especially if it’s going to represent the entire country. I want a system restructure https://t.co/qZkZrJhSSa— #Qhawe OUT NOW (@ntsikimazwai) October 28, 2019
The Boks will play against England for the World Cup this Saturday, November 2 at the International Stadium Yokohama in Japan at 11h00.
