Ndebele activist Thando Mahlangu was teary-eyed on Thursday after talks with Boulders Shopping Centre management collapsed.

“I am not happy with the offer that they are offering us. I am not happy with the way they are handling things as well,” he said during a media briefing.

In March, a video went viral on social media, which shows Mahlangu being hounded by the mall’s manager, Jose Maponyane.

In the video, Maponyane asks Mahlangu to leave a store because he was “indecently” dressed.
