Guess who's back on Twitter... again

Last week Twitter banned the account of Andile Mngxitama, for the second time, to the delight of many South Africans. Unfortunately, it seems as if the president of BLF (Black First Land First) can't grasp the fact that he is not wanted on the platform.

On the 22nd of December 2018, he posted the following tweet under his newly created profile in which he blames white people for the death of black people on the roads due to the "migrant slave labour system" that "whites" created. His latest account also makes reference to infamous "1:5" ratio in many tweets, which is a clear reference to the statement he made in which he asked hundreds of supporters that for every one black person killed they make sure they kill five white people, whether women, children or animals.

So ladies and gentlemen, let's welcome Andile Mngxitama back to Twitter by requesting that Twitter enforce their own policies and block his new account too. After all, he admits to being blocked before and that is the reason he created the new twitter profile.

You can request for him to be blocked by reporting his tweet. You can do this by clicking on the down arrow next to his tweet and then selecting "Report Tweet", then selecting "It's abusive or harmful" then selecting "It directs hate against a protected category (e.g., race, religion, gender, orientation, disability)", then selecting "A group of people" and then click "Next". It's as easy as that.

It's important that we all play our part to ensure that populism doesn't ruin South Africa. We simply can't allow voices like his, who advocate for violence and the killing of people, to become popular in South Africa.

Be sure to leave a comment and let us know if you reported his profile!
