WATCH: 'Wellmeaning racist' hygiene lesson for workers causes outrage on Twitter

20-second handwashing
A video posted by Lesego Tlhabi (aka Coconut Kelz) shows a woman instructing the group how to wash their hands for 20 seconds.

The video is filmed at an apartment block in Illovo, where a woman called Shelley gathers together a group of workers who live on the fifth floor of the building for a "hygiene lesson".

Other residents were apparently invited to watch the demonstration from their balconies.

The woman proceeds to give a "lesson" on carrying out the 20-second handwashing routine advised during the Covid-19 outbreak.

Addressing the group, she starts out by calling them "girls" then quickly switches to "gentlemen and ladies".

The instructions include commands like "put the soap on your hands" and "then switch off the tap". She also encourages the group to sing Shozoloza.

Bystanders filming the demonstration were told to leave, "this is for residents only".

Tweeps responded with outrage, their comments including "it's the well meaning racists that are the worst" to "the white saviour complex oppressing fellow black South Africans".

One pointed out that people who clean for a living actually tend to know more about the topic than those for whom they clean, a point echoed by former DA politician Lindiwe Mazibuko.
