Imagine SA’s biggest political movements as siblings in a black family

A local media personality hilariously characterises most of SA's political movements as family members in a black family, and the result is hilarious.

As the holiday season approaches, fun festivities aren’t the only thing that are top of mind for South Africans. Many are either looking forward to or dreading time spent with their often dysfunctional but entertaining family members.

Perhaps it is this fact that prompted entertainer Blessing “MaBlerh” Cele to let his imagination run wild in a hilarious Twitter thread that characterises some of South Africa’s biggest political movements as siblings in a black family.
