Doest thou protest too much Mzwandile Masina?
Twitterati, by and large, disagrees
Seemingly, South African’s are sceptical and most suggest Masina’s tweet is suspicious in itself. Lokothwayo@LoksDhlamini says, “The move by Zondo’s investigators to go after prominent politicians’ & their associates’ bank accounts has really shaken Mzwandile Masina, man is panicking can’t even hide it.”
Moreover, Masina now defends his statement, calling on South Africans to stop criminalising “black success”. Quickly, responses appear on social media. Obviously, corruption could hardly be termed a success.”
It is not success Masina, it is theft and patronage started by Zuma. Don't bullshit us.

ANC thieves are weird AF,so Masina just said we must support black people that are getting arrested for corruption? The audacity from these politicians zero respect for citizens I guess they think they are leading robots!! #VoetsekANC

Masina backs EFF despite being an ANC leader
Furthermore, recent history saw Masina fully backing Julius Malema’s call for a total breakdown of the economy. Interestingly, this statement is not in line with ANC policy. Meanwhile, South African’s are fed up with looters, no matter what colour they are.
With figures topping trillions of rands misspent while voters continue to live lives unchanged, the writing is surely on the wall for the ANC? Indeed, unless more politicians and corrupt officials are jailed before the next municipal election, opposition parties may even pick up a lot of voters.
I fully agree with my friend on this one @Julius_S_Malema. Until we nationalise all commanding heights of the economy- we need to restart this economy and make sure it favors the majority. Things can’t be sane again pic.twitter.com/NNULKJX6zV
