Gather around millennials, Ntsiki Mazwai has some wise words to share. 

Okay wait. For those of you who don't know Ntsiki, she is a poet and an activist, and she isn't shy to voice her opinions. 

As the mourners gathered at Orlando Stadium in Johannesburg to pay tribute to Winnie Madikizela-Madela, Ntsiki could not bite her tongue about how Ma Winnie's great grandchildren spoke in English and had a distinct twang. 

Ntsiki also slammed parents who think that their children only speaking English is cute. 

Do you think Ntsiki has a point or does it even matter? 

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela’s great-grandchildren pay tribute to her at her memorial in Orlando Stadium, Soweto, on April 11 2018.
