South Africans took to Twitter to slam former National Assembly speaker Baleka Mbete’s recent interview on Al Jazeera

After being asked about research by the World Bank which showed that SA was an unequal society, she told presenter Mehdi Hasan, that the World Bank was not God.

She was also unable to answer a question about why no one has been held responsible for the horror deaths of miners in Marikana in 2012.

After an audience member questioned her about the ANC’s failure to take control of crime in the country, she said that colonialists had brought crime from Europe to Africa.
