After last year’s cigarette ban, Nkosana Dlamini Zuma is no stranger to controversial decisions. That trend is set to continue with a new attack on South African Muslims with a ban on their favorite iftaar time savoury – The Samoosa.
The Vice President was asked as to why she found issue with the triangular treat, she responded:
“When people fill, they put…saliva on the paid pur….and then they share that fill”
Just like Proteas and opportunities to win Test matches, The news was not very well taken by the ladies within the Muslim community. People were up in arms on hearing this devastating news, many had that look of painful shock, which can be best described as resembling Indian folk running on the promenade in Durban during the holidays – Really struggling and red in the face.
We went out and spoke to people in Radio Islam Land to find out how they felt about not having their staple savoury on the table this year when breaking fast:
“I will fry my samoosa’s extra crispy and use them as ninja stars, she must come try her luck” – Maryam (62)
“I don’t make any savouries, we just air-fry bananas” – Mumtaz (35)
“If you haven’t started preparing already my sisters, you gonna cry, y’all mustn’t come ask me – Shereen (68)
“It’s fine, I’ll just make more spring rolls” – Nasiha(29)
“She got shares in the Pie Business, that’s why she doing this” – Goolam Bhai (73)
Rashaad Purrwala of the lobby Group Samoosas without Borders said they will not be cutting any corners in their fight to have the ban overturned.
They are set to appeal the Samoosa Ban on Fryday.
