The gloves were off between actors Hlomla Dandala and Pamela Nomvete who exchanged words over xenophobia in SA

The spicy exchange was sparked by Hlomla’s comments after he had taken a drive through Johannesburg suburbs, Yeoville and Hillbrow.

“Driving through Yeoville and Hillbrow reminds one of how much we’ve lost to foreign African nationals. Call it xenophobia all you like but truth is truth,” he tweeted.

Hlomla’s comments made its way onto Pamela’s timeline and she was far from impressed.

Pamela who is currently in the UK labelled Hlomla’s comments “dangerous and sad”.

“You attack foreigners at home your people are being attacked as foreigners elsewhere. Respect, tolerance and respect for all human dignity,” Pamela added.

Hlomla stood by his comments and told Pamela to read all the comments he made to have a better understanding.

He said he was referring to “a specific mafia that ruined those neighbourhoods”.

“Please read more of what I said. There are medium limitations that require multiple tweets to unpack a thought,” he added.
