Mzansi singer Zwai Bala is reaching out to the country for support following a racially motivated attack on his brother in Gordon’s Bay.
In a heartfelt plea, the popular singer shared the details of the incident that unfolded at Bertie’s Moorings Restaurant while he was enjoying a day out with his family.
According to Zwai, his brother Lwando was targeted when he attempted to capture some photos. It seems that in the eyes of these racists, the simple act of taking pictures is reserved only for those of a certain race.
Zwai expressed his frustration, stating, “We paid our bill and left a generous tip, just like anyone else would. But apparently, walking around and snapping photos is a privilege reserved for whites. I won’t let these establishments off the hook.”
Taking a stand against entitled racists, Zwai is calling on everyone who can to join him in making it abundantly clear that there is no place for such behaviour in any part of our land. He has urged people to attend the court hearing at Strand Magistrates Court on 7 February to show their support.
Reflecting on the incident, Zwai revealed that things could have taken a much darker turn. Thankfully, no one else was harmed, but he narrowly escaped a physical altercation. The case has been postponed to 7 February 2024, and Zwai remains determined to seek justice.
Fans have rallied behind Zwai, offering their unwavering support during this challenging time. It is heartening to witness the unity and solidarity that emerges in the face of adversity. Together, we can work towards a society that rejects racism and embraces equality for all.
