TV presenter and Idols winner, Khaya Mthethwa is accused of being a tribalist following his question on whether Jacob Zuma should’ve read the late King Zwelithini’s eulogy rather than the present president Cyril Ramaphosa. Mthethwa tweeted on his social media account: “Would it are wrong if CR asked JZ to try to to the eulogy?”


While his question rubbed people off the incorrect way, others found his question to be completely innocent and relevant.

Mthethwa isn’t the primary ZAleb to be accused of tribalism as Idols judge, Unathi Nkayi also got into hot waters last year when she congratulated then, Xhosa Idols winner, Luyolo of carrying the entire nation due to his tribe on the singing competition.

The radio host stated on the show: “On behalf of the Xhosa people, we are uninterested in holding up the state .” She was then reported to the BCCSA over her “tribalistic comments” that she made on the show and was cleared by the commission after they found that the media personality didn’t incite any hatred or harm in her comments.

Tribalism may be a touching issue for South Africa ns and it’s still a thorny issue towards reconciliation in South Africa.

Here were some comments from Mthethwa’s “tribalistic” tweets on Twitter:

“I think he’s sarcastically saying the president speech Bored him, Zuma would have done better especially considering that Silili isn’t Zulu. there’s an absolute tribalistic undertone in his question.

“Even racists don’t feel or admit that their statements are racist, they always find thanks to justifying it.”

“At Mandela’s funeral wouldn’t it be wrong if then-President Zuma asked Thabo Mbeki to try to to the Eulogy since Qunu people were Xhosa speakers? Tribalistic statements.”

I’m curious about checking out what prompted this question, sir. Imagine is that the same was said during Mandela’s funeral that TM should are asked to eulogize him. However, I’m supplying you with the advantage of the doubt that you simply may need a reason beyond ok to suggest that…”

“I also had equivalent sentiments that the Eulogy would have been more heartwarming for us as the Zulu nation had JZ did it because his choice of words would have been on point and he would have delivered it in IsiZulu..”
