Penuel’s thoughts on White Afrikaners and the Springboks upset SA

A few months ago, Penuel’s thoughts on Economic Freedom Fighter Julius Malema landed him in trouble with the politician who blasted him on social media.

Despite this, Penuel continues to share his thoughts on trending topics and the current struggles of South Africa.

He recently headed to X to share his thoughts on how well structured things turn out be when they are spearheaded by white Afrikaners.

According to him, they are the reason behind the success of the national rugby team, the Springboks.

“The Springboks are great because White Afrikaners & their structures are great. White Afrikaners also built Eskom, Yskor, Sasol, Armscor, etc. It is important that we work with them, like Siya Kolisi, Lukhanyo Am, Cheslin Kolbe, etc… to build a world-leading economy,” he wrote.

Instant backlash

In the comment section, app users instantly started slamming for crediting white people.

“You sound like someone who preaches reconciliation with people who never asked for forgiveness, this doesn’t surprise me though coz you have this thing where you suck up to everything white. The reluctance to work together is not coming from blacks, just so you know,” one app user wrote while another said:

“They don’t want to work with us because racism and racial inequality is what drives this country and they are benefiting from that. Blacks are not lazy, they are still economically oppressed and whites have no desire to let us in.”
