If you’ve been on Twitter in the last 48 hours you may have come across the disturbing story of Anele Hoyana’s death The Eastern Cape sangoma was killed by his white farmer ‘friend’, and the whole thing was captured and shared on social media.
Twitter went into full meltdown mode over the clearly racially-fueled crime and tweeps called out the disgusting act as well as the ‘fake unity’ that has prevailed since the Springboks won the Rugby World Cup.
Zalebs, like the rest of us, were outraged too and made their feelings known. Pearl Thusi shared her condolences to Anele’s family and took aim at the South African judiciary system.
#RIPANELE Those videos broke my heart. I can only imagine what his family is going through.
The South African Justice system needs to find stronger measures to condemn acts of Racism.
As these weeds keep sprouting, they need to be dug, pulled out by the roots and burnt. 💔

Dineo Moeketsi called for the person who filmed the video to be prosecuted to the highest extent.
Where is the person recording the #AneleHoyana murder? Are they not an accessory? Surely they must get to the root of all this evil! How many that were around Fritz are exactly like him?! Uproot the whole damn thing.
