Nomzamo Mbatha is receiving severe backlash after a photo of her and kwaito musician Arthur Mafokate was shared on social media. Why are people so angry about a photo? Well, that's because Nomzamo is an activist and Arthur is accused of abusing his ex.
Actress and activist Nomzamo Mbatha got herself into hot water when she posed for a snap with Arthur Mafokate.
Why would it matter if Nomzamo took a photo with the kwaito musician?
It's all about the accusations of physical abuse against him, something that Nomzamo is supposed to be completely against.
The photo was taken by Arthur at the ANC manifesto launch in KZN, and South Africans were not impressed.
Many people felt Nomzamo should not have been seen with Arthur because she's meant to be against the things he is accused of.
Nomzamo apologised for her 'slip-up'.
Fikile Mbalula, Head of Elections, apologised on behalf of the ANC for the negative attention the actress is getting.
Arthur himself tried to soothe things and asked South Africans to not blame Nomzamo.
The award-winning R & B singer Cici made headlines when she accused Arthur of being physically abusive. Briefly.co.za reported that Cici laid charges of abuse against him.
A report by TimesLIVE indicates that the case is still ongoing and Cici will testify against Arthur in August.
