Xhosa lady told she must go back to Eastern Cape by a member of the Zulu royal family at Enyokeni.

There is tribalism in every province and it's something that we got from the divide and conquer strategy that the Apartheid government used to gain control of us. It look like there were angry at journalist as well and didn't want them there.

tribalism is pride in culture and traditions. Instead of being shunned and condemned, they celebrate it and shield the perpetrators. Its get out of hand when they accuse anyone who disagrees with their tribalism of not being South African

Yesterday I had a finger wagging in my face, threatened and told that I must go back to Eastern Cape by a member of the Zulu royal family at Enyokeni. I'm still not sure what I did to her but I will never set my foot at their palaces again. Also I did not accept her apology.

Zimasa, I am sorry about what you went through. Since I came to KZN in 2008, I have accepted tribalism as a norm. It's like there is a special school for tribalism here in KZN because everywhere I have lived it's been there. They even make tribalistic jokes.
