Dlamini-Zuma labels Save SA protests ‘rubbish’
ANC presidential contender Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma appears to have referred to the Save SA protests on Friday as ‘rubbish’.
JOHANNESBURG - African National Congress (ANC) presidential contender Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma appears to have referred to the Save SA protests on Friday as ‘rubbish’.
She was responding to a Twitter conversation in which Treasury spokesperson Mayihlome Tshwete said the Save SA protests were well-funded.
Another person then said it’s mind-blowing how many resources their privilege affords them.
Dlamini-Zuma then said: "This is what they are protecting... hence some of us are not part of this rubbish. They must join us for the march for our land they stole...”
Dlamini-Zuma has now deleted that tweet, while posting a further message saying she was aware of a "fake tweet doing rounds".
I am aware of a fake tweet doing rounds purportedly coming from my account.The source of this is currently being investigated.— Dr Dlamini Zuma (@DlaminiZuma) April 7, 2017
However, many people pointed out the tweet was posted from her account and could not have been fake.
Was the former government minister hacked?
