The daughter of late former president Nelson Mandela, Zindzi, appears to have taken to social media platform Twitter to air her views on certain sections of South African society.

Besides being the daughter of the founder of the Rainbow Nation, Zindzi is also South Africa’s ambassador to Denmark. This fact has become a huge part of the debate on her social media outburst.

Zindzi Mandela sparks debate

Seemingly unprovoked, Zindzi sparked an extremely heated debate on Twitter when she posted the following Tweet:

The immediate reaction to her opinion was outrage from white South Africans who believed, regardless of her personal views, an ambassador for the country should represent everyone from that country.

Sticking to her guns

Far from apologetic, Zindzi’s tweets became increasingly antagonistic as she double down on her opinions, alternating between hashtags #TheLandIsOurs, #OurLand, and #TheirLand.

Account not verified

It should be noted that her account is not verified as official on Twitter and while the account does seem like it belongs to her, it is not 100% confirmed.

Whether or not it is an official account, the views expressed did garner some support on Twitter as well.
