“I think he is sarcastically saying the president speech Bored him, Zuma would have done better especially considering that Silili is not Zulu. There is an absolute tribalistic undertone in his question.
“Even racist don’t feel or admit that their statements are racist, they always find way to justify it.”
“At Mandela’s funeral would it be wrong if then President Zuma asked Thabo Mbeki to do the Eulogy since Qunu people were Xhosa speakers? Tribalistic statements.”
“I’m interested in finding out what prompted this question sir. Imagine is the same was said during Mandela funeral that TM should have been asked to eulogise him. However, I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt that you might have a reason beyond good enough to suggest that…”
“I also had the same sentiments that the Eulogy would of been more heart warming for us as a Zulu nation had JZ did it because his choice of words would of been on point and he would of delivered it in IsiZulu.”
