Celebrity and media personality Tbo Touch received a lot of resilience following his recent social media comments about immigrants crossing the South African borders illegally, the 19th of November, on Twitter.

The masses at large bombarded the social media platform after he commented on a video post by which the prime time news anchor Cathy Mohlahlana, of Newzroom Afrika posted, revealing how many immigrants entered the country illegally.

The video clearly shows how a small group of people emerged from the bushes, running towards minibuses parked by the side of the road.

Tbo Touch came across the post, and shared his view, in his response to Mohlahlana, he wrote: “Cathy, we have Home Affairs throwing toys all over the place on #Bushiri when they know we have open borders. There are 4,5million illegal immigrants in SA with no finger prints, valid identity at all.”

See his response below:

After his response, the masses took to the platform, describing and labelling the media personality as “Xenophobic”, whilst a few applauded at him, by noting that the South African Government is not doing enough to protect it`s citizens by handling the borders issue. Tbo Touch then reacted once more, highlighting what had occurred with him and his wife Nandi Molefe during a terrible robbery incident.

Furthermore, the star tweeted that we should not misinterpret Xenophobia and Patriotism. In this tweet, he paints a clear distinction of what his action against the initial tweet means and that everybody must be proud of their nationality!

Has the conversation on Twitter sparked a sense of division and a perception that Africans will not get along?

Will this conversation be ongoing? Will something be done to protect the borders of South Africa and bring people together peacefully sorting out any woes that this very continent is facing?

Zondo Recusal Postponed. Will Jacob Zuma’s application for Zondo’s recusal be successful?

On the state capture commission yesterday, 16th November 2020, former president Jacob Zuma and his lawyers continued to put pressure on the commission to have Deputy Chief Justice and Commissioner Judge Raymond Zondo to recuse himself. This week started off with a bang, as Judge Zondo himself delivered a statement in response to Jacob Zuma’s application for recusal, stating that “he and Zuma are not friends, although about more than 13 years ago, we have communicated to have a few meetings with each other, that he understood that we should draw a line in my relationship with him so as not to create a public perception that I relied on him as president to rise in my judicial career.”

Former president Jacob Zuma claims that Judge Raymond Zondo is ‘biased’ and ‘too conflicted’ to grill the former president. His legal counsel, advocate Muzi Sikhakhane told the Zondo commission yesterday that Jacob Zuma does not fear any findings that the commission may have come across. Sikhakhane, on Monday 16th November, argued that Deputy Chief Justice Judge Raymond Zondo should be recused, as Zondo’s remarks and comments towards the testifying witnesses at the state of commission inquiry were insensitive and clearly shown that in his perspective that the former president is indeed guilty.

Deputy Chief Justice Judge Raymond Zondo today, 17 November 2020, at 10:20 am decided that he will announce his judgement of the application tomorrow, 18 November 2020, on whether or not he will recuse himself from the proceedings, as applied for by the former president Jacob Zuma. It looks like the decision to step down from the proceedings bare a huge amount of weight on Judge Zondo.

Will he or will he not recuse himself?

The decision is yet to be made.
