Many years after their apartheid woes became forgotten history South Africans turned upon the same brothers that liberated them, killing, looting and destroying without pity.
Once upon a time, South Africa was a death trap for blacks, who were under the boot of apartheid.
They were slaves in their own land, turned into second class citizens, until their black brothers took up their case as a personal issue and liberated them.
Many years after, their woes became forgotten history and they turned upon the same brothers that liberated them, killing, looting and destroying without pity.
Here is a poem for those who lost their lives:
when a king farts with his mouth
like kaBhekuzulu - a man uncouth,
Trouble truncates his sleeping time
to merge Life and Death into a rhyme.
when Royal lips part empty of wisdom
Goodwill is exiled from the kingdom!
men bleed on Zwelithini's folly-slab
a king walks sideways like a crab!
Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini is believed to have sparked the Xenophobic attacks through comments he allegedly made on March 23.
He denied, but many people have lost their lives and livelihood – like Mozambique national Emmanuel Sithole who was attacked by men in Alexandra Township and left to die on the street like a dog.
May it never happen again.
King Zwelithini's BLOODY FART was written by Kukogho Iruesuru Samson.
