Last weekend we were celebrating Siya Kolisi for leading the Springboks into winning the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Now, Mzansi adorned the Kolisi family and used their relationship to show that love sees no race.
This celebration was short-lived when Rachel Kolisi started trending on Twitter and it was for the wrong reasons. It seems that when Mzansi was celebrating the win and women all over gave Siya Kolisi a little bit of extra attention, someone decided to turn that into a black on black ‘twar’.
Black South African women saw red when a picture of young Siya and Rachel captioned,’ “I bet black women rejected him then’ started trending and gave life to twar”.
#RachelKolisi decided to be a woman to Siya Kolisi, she never chased after temporary things and fake lifestyle, she was never here screaming men are trash because she was building her man. She knew one thing and that is her power to produce a king! Real women nurtures! pic.twitter.com/4wKKXxCmUH

May we applaud Siya for being loyal to #RachelKolisi when all starting going well for him. I know guys who'd leave their women just after getting their N6 certificate. Not a deploma yal, a certificate. Every girl knows a guy that went awol on her when all was going well for him

#RachelKolisi is a definition of a REAL woman. She wasn't after material or money. She believes inlove and supported her man's dreams. Which is quite rare these days. Her character & personality is everything.

But #RachelKolisi was there from when Siya was still upcoming and he was nothing. Something u black girls clearly can’t do. Y’all want ready made men to just move in with to buy u weaves and shit.
