Mind your principals from principles, Twitter schools presidential hopeful

Twitter users wonder if Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma knows the difference between principles and principals.

Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

ANC presidential contender Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma stirred yet another social media row, this time regarding whether she could differentiate her principals from her principles.

In a tweet posted at about 15.25pm on Saturday, July 15, Dr Dlamini-Zuma wrote: “We must protect and preserve the ANC and its values and principals as it is the only thing we have as black people in this country.”

She was told perhaps she misspelled principles because she did not have any.

Whereas other users overlooked the typo, they wondered if the president had any values.

And it went downhill from there for the former AU commissioner, currently campaigning around the country to garner votes ahead of the ANC elective conference in December.

She was clearly not having a good day in the Twittersphere.

She was reminded if principles were all black people had, then there was no point.
