Ntsiki Mazwai takes offense at being labelled an instigator

Ntsiki Mazwai has taken offense to the suggestion that she is an instigator, after she questioned whether the national shutdown will be taking place. 

Ntsiki Mazwai took to Twitter on Saturday, 21 August 2021, to drum up support for the anticipated national shutdown. The social media initiative was reportedly created to rally anti-President Cyril Ramaphosa supporters, to galvanise to force the hand of the state to remove him as president. Therefore, when Mazwai shared the aforementioned post, it was believed that she was attempting to instigate violence.

Such sentiments were shared in light of Mazwai having previously advocated for the release of former president, Jacob Zuma. Mazwai advocated for his release by arguing that his release would have ensured calm in light of the recent political unrest and looting. However, considering the inflammatory headline she chose for the article, many believed that her call for Zuma’s release was due to her support for him.

Therefore, a Twitter user accused her of being an instigator by writing, “In fact if something happens tomorrow, Ntsiki should be investigated for any involvement in instigating violence.” Mazwai initially attempted to laugh it off, until the Twitter user highlighted that Mazwai being flippant does not mean her words do not carry influence. In response, she blocked the Twitter user.
