JOHANNESBURG - The man at the centre of the waitress tip debacle has given his account of what happened.

Ntokozo Qwabe caused a storm last month when he wrote on Facebook about his experience with a waitress at a restaurant in Cape Town.

He says he doesn’t understand why he’s the focus of the incident.

Some have compared Qwabe’s post to that of Matthew Theunissen's.

He hurled racist remarks at government on social media following the ban on some sporting codes bidding for major international events.

Qwabe says he finds this comparison offensive.

He says the ruling party is missing the mark.

The ANC has weighed in on the tipping debacle, condemning Qwabe's behaviour.

The Oxford student denies he’s racist and says he won’t stop talking about inequality issues plaguing the country.
