Andile was slammed on Twitter after sharing photos of Steve Biko and Gupta having lunch.

Stephen Biko was a South African anti-apartheid activist who died on September 12, 1977. He was an African nationalist and African socialist, and he was at the forefront of the Black Consciousness Movement, a grassroots anti-apartheid campaign in the late 1960s and early 1970s. His thoughts were expressed in a series of articles published under the pen name Frank Talk.

The Gupta family is a wealthy Indian-born family with South African business interests, the most notable members of which are brothers. The family is the owner of a business empire that includes computer equipment, media, and mining. The family became synonymous with corruption in South Africa, and their activities have been sanctioned by several countries.


Andile was slammed on Twitter after he shared a photo of what he mentioned as Steve Biko having lunch with an Indian family, which he alleged to be the Gupta family, and people were not happy with the findings and attacked him verbally.

In our eyes, it seemed so... when it comes to the capital part, which you know will retain your dignity in many aspects, it is always done behind closed doors, where you'll probably never feature. They say we African Americans will never be like them.

I'm looking at the caption at the bottom of the picture. Although I can't make out the whole caption, I see the surname Goolam, not Gupta. Did you analyse it properly before distributing it to social media? Or do you have the whole picture with the caption for us to see? " I added Peter on Twitter.

Andile, you're trying new tricks. You are just trying to dilute your close friendship with your Gupta icons. Try another one. This cheap one failed. While South Africans sleep at night, we see through your gimmick. The pic does not justify your Gupta association.

Medulla added that Indians were also discriminated against by apartheid legislation, such as the Group Areas Act. In 1950, Indians were forcibly moved into Indian townships and had their movements restricted. They were not allowed to reside in the Orange Free State Province and needed special permission.
