Vusi Thembekwayo: Black people were not ready for freedom

Published on

Vusi Thembekwayo is facing backlash after a video of him claiming that Black people were not ready for freedom surfaced on social media.

Vusi Thembekwayo topped the Twitter trends list again on Friday, 10 July 2020. This time, however, it was not as a result of social media users commending him for his comments. In a video which has since gone viral, the businessman and motivational speaker claimed that Black people were not ready for freedom, ultimately sparking outrage across the country.

He further likened Black people’s mindsets to a virus whose only remedy is to kill the host. Vusi Thembekwayo went on to make various claims about the behaviour and characteristics of Black people, problematising the way they engage with one another.

Following the backlash, the Shark Tank contributor took to Twitter to defend himself, which only resulted in further criticism.
