JOHANNESBURG - Nando's is getting grilled on social media. That's after the chicken franchise sponsored a controversial discussion about the elections, called The Burning Platform.

On the Cliff Central podcast, host Gareth Cliff discusses racial issues around the elections.

His guests are DA leader John Steenhuisen and the One Movement SA's Mudzuli Rakhivhane.

Cliff refers to Rakhivhane's experiences of racism as "anecdotal and completely unimportant".

He quotes an Institute for Race Relations report that says racism is at the bottom of its list of priorities and concerns.

Some Twitter users are furious with Cliff, Steenhuisen and Nando's.

Nando's has responded on its social media account, saying it's taking the matter under review.
