Ayanda Borotho slams disrespectful kids for Public display of affection
Ayanda Borotho slams children who find it is acceptable to kiss in the public, she claims that it is disrespect for elders.
“I have a problem and I’d like to know something. When we leave home, our villages and townships, do we just leave all the home training, respect and values there as black people? When we get to the suburbs and the gated communities, does that mean we forget who we are to adopt all the Western ways, even the silly ones?”, Ayanda asked followers on her Instagram.
Ayanda said children have clearly lost respect for elders.
“I’m always shocked to see young people, some as young as 13, 14, 15 etc. standing next to electricity poles, holding each other and kissing without any care in the world. Now, that’s a problem for me because I grew up in an era where if you were with your boyfriend or girlfriend in the streets and an elder appeared, you would be ashamed and hide. We used to show the same respect to all elders and treated them as we would our parents.
“But children these days just do their thing right in front of us in the streets! Right in front of us… I don’t understand.”
