While Mzansi was celebrating the Springboks making it through to the finals of 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan on Sunday, Ntsiki Mazwai seems to disagree.

Taking to her Twitter page, the controversial poet ruffled feathers when she posted that she finds the "rugby team to be an apartheid trigger" and that she can't "celebrate the victory of white domination using a black female CEO". 

She followed this by saying that rugby for her represents how "mentally damaged we are" and that she can't be excited about "crumbs" while upholding "white supremacy". 

Once again this caused a heated debate in her mentions regarding her statements. 

Laugh? At what exactly? We lack patriots in this country, Rugby is not a White man's sport same as soccer is not a Black man's sport. At least they are doing something that is worth celebrating, For once nje

I'm very disappointed that it's you saying this... When I 1st read it I thought it was someone else. I got excited there for a moment thinking more people are "woke". It had to be said though.

i lived in apartheid times & that team to me still represents bad memories. I can't even celebrate forged unity. Maybe someday but i don't see that coming😯

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. Decide sis where exactly u stand
