SA Screen Goddess Pearl Thusi, who is active on Twitter, is one of many celebrities who have spoken out about the country’s socioeconomic predicament.
Pearl has been actively tweeting about how the government has failed its citizens, accusing them of being looters.
Some citizens of the country drifted from protesting for the release of Jacob Zuma to looting supermarkets and destroying goods.
The actress said that she has lost all faith and respect in the administration as a result of their failure to carry out their responsibilities. Ramaphosa’s trolls attacked her on Twitter, prompting her to defend her right to free speech by reminding them that everyone has a right to their own viewpoint.
She captioned and her post;
“As citizens we all have a right to our opinions- I have the right to speak up and express my discontentment- disagreeing with me or anyone else is fine until we’re throwing insults because our opinions are challenged.
Democracy was built for discourse – not autocracy or bullying”
