Kelly Khumalo says South Africans have suffered enough during the pandemic and it is time to take action.
“If there was ever a time to fight, this is the time! We have been taken for granted for far too long, we have lost everything, friends and family members lost to this pandemic, jobs and businesses lost and yet we are still the ones to continue paying the price,” she wrote on Instagram.
The singer says she is disgusted by the government treating the country like it is toilet paper.
“What more do we need for us to see that it is not about us, it never was and never will be. Unless we fight to get out country and our freedom back. All the oldies in government must step down! Kugangwa ngathi manje.”
Out with the old, in with the new
The ‘Empini’ hitmaker says it has become quite clear that government does not care about the people.
“It is time that we get ride of those who are in power because they feel entitled, they don’t understand the meaning of service. It’s not about them, it’s about people. They will keep taking this money because they feel they fought for freedom therefore these people owe us.
“We must get rid of everyone who feels entitled, starting over, but it’s not going to be handed to us,” she said in a video she shared on Instagram.
