Minnie Dlamini is outraged

Minnie Dlamini has made damning accusations against an unnamed KwaZulu-Natal store. According to Dlamini, her parents were not allowed entry into a grocery store because they are black.

Taking to Instagram, the TV presenter shared how distressed she was after getting a call from her mother who explained that she and her dad were out of food supplies. The situation took a turn for the worse when they were not allowed to go into a store to buy some food because of the colour of their skin.

“The situation in Durban is getting out of hand. My parents are not allowed to buy food in their residential area because they are black! Mom called me and told me they have run out of food,” reads her a post on her Instagram Story.

“If us black people we’re not going to learn from THIS. Then there’s something wrong with us. Sorry Minnie that your mother’s skin denied her entrance the very same thing we fought for during APARTHEID and the irony is it served her right.”
