The woman who calls herself Shokwakhe claimed that she was originally served by a waiter called Nomatter who is of Zimbabwean descent. She went on to claim that she requested to be served by a South African, rather than an ‘alien’.

Shokwakhe also included the famous hashtag, #PutSouthAfricansFirst, which some people argue is xenophobic. In her defence, she argued that she is advocating for the employment of South Africans in low-skill sectors such as restaurants in order to reduce the unemployment rate which is apparently high.

However, her Twitter post sparked outrage with many people questioning the rationale for refusing to be served by a foreigner when she was buying in a foreign-owned restaurant chain where the food may have been prepared by a foreigner.

Below are a few Tweets and reactions from her post:
