South Africa is celebrating heritage day on 24 September and many are looking forward to this day. Heritage is all that we have that reminds many us of who we are. No matter what challenges we might be facing, that can't really be an excuse why we should not celebrate heritage day.
South Africans are encouraged to celebrate their culture and diversity of their beliefs and traditions on this day.
We know that In KwaZulu-Natal, 24 September was known as Shaka Day for most people, in commemoration of Shaka, the Zulu king of southern Africa, on the presumed date of his death on this date 1828. We also know that this year things are a bit difficult for the Zulu Royal family to hold the event, after government stopped the funding to the royal house due to squabbles about who is the next King of the Zulu nation.
As people prepares to celebrate this day, Mbuyiseni Ndlozi made a tweet about heritage day that did not sit well with many people. According to Ndlozi, heritage day does not exists because people don't have land. There are so many things that our people don't have, but that should not mean that people should not embrace who they are are.
The way people responded to Ndlozi, it shows that people are not happy about the EFF especially when it comes to the issue of foreign nationals. They always reminds the EFF about what they once said about foreign nationals and South Africans. The EFF said that, their mandate is not to put South Africans first but Africans. Before you become an African, we have to recognize you first as either South African Zimbabwe, Nigerian, and all this countries in Africa.
South African people have many challenges that they are facing at the current moment, and having more illegal immigrants in the country won't solve the problem at all and it might just make it to be worse.
