Cape Town - Twitter was ablaze after Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi congratulated Springboks captain Siya Kolisi on Twitter but told the rest of the team to "get congratulations from Prince Harry".

This comes after the South Africa's Springboks clinched their third World Cup title with a crushing 32-12 victory over England at Yokohama Stadium in Japan. 

South Africans saw the match and the victory as nation-building and as a way to unify the country. 

Some accused Ndlozi of being racist, saying he was 'dividing the nation'.

Others defended Ndlozi, saying he was just speaking his truth.
