Maimane's invitation to racist models
DISGRACED models Jessica Leandra dos Santos and Tshidi Thamana have accepted an invitation by the DA's Mmusi Maimane for a reconciliation meeting at his home.
Maimane yesterday extended the invitation to talk to Dos Santos and colleague Thamana following their racist twitter rants recently.
The models caused an uproar at the weekend after they exchanged racist remarks on the social network.
Dos Santos's tweet read: "Just, well took on an arrogant and disrespectful k***** inside Spar. Should have punched him."
On Monday, Thamana responded on Twitter: "Dear Mr Peter Mokaba . I wish All White People were killed when you sang 'kill the boer' we wouldn't be experiencing @Jessica Leandra's racism right now**".
In response to Maimane's invitation, Dos Santos said: "At this moment I accept and acknowledge that I have brought this nation of ours to its knees. I now intend to mend my ways and ensure that I restore the trust of all South Africans."
She appealed to Thamana "to embrace this opportunity and walk this road jointly with me".
Thamana had not commented over the invitation by late yesterday.
Dos Santos has since lost several of her modelling contracts.
Reports that Thamana's modelling agency has also cancelled her contract could not be confirmed.
