- The EFF’s spokesperson, Mbyiseni Ndlozi, opened up about his absent father recently
- He spoke about the few times they talked to each other face to face
- And, the time he said something that made his dad get in his car and drive off
Mbuyiseni Ndlozi is one of the most beloved politicians in South Africa, which got him the nickname “The People’s Bae”.
However, the man who is widely loved by many once again opened up about his absent father, who he only had contact with a handful of times.
Sowetan LIVE reported the People’s Bae opened up about his absent father on Metro FM, where he spoke about the few encounters he had with his father.
According to the EFF spokesperson, he met his dad the first time as a child, when he was asked to take something to a man in a vehicle.
After doing what he was told, his mom revealed the man in the car was his father. He then spoke to his dad again after he graduated from high school.
The People’s Bae explained he and his dad had a conversation about his future plans which ended up with his dad getting in a car and driving off.
The conversation started with Ndlozi and his dad talking about his university plans, which included studying at Wits.
Ndlozi had to hold back at one point when his old man tried to warn him against using drugs. But, Briefly.co.za learned it was not until they talked about church that he threw a bit of shade at his dad.
"Later on he was like; 'I hear that you are a very faithful church boy‚ you go to church every Sunday. I was like 'God is the only father I know'. He was like 'okay' and he got in the car and left.", Ndlozi explained.
Following the incident, Ndlozi and his dad met again while he was doing research for his PhD studies, because his father had allegedly been involved with a group that wreaked havoc on Sebokeng years ago.
This was not the first time Ndlozi opened up about his father. In an interview in 2017, the People’s Bae said it was his choice whether he wanted to include his dad in his life, adding he would not be victimized for his decision.
