Fana Mokoena has received some backlash after condemning Babes Wodumo's alleged abuse without naming Mampintsha, her reported abuser. The actor and EFF member justified his post by saying that he was a 'lawmaker' who couldn't do things 'out of anger'.
Fana Mokoena is causing a stir for all the wrong reasons. With emotions running high as the Babes Wodumo saga unfolds, the actor and EFF member unwittingly incited some strong feelings on social media.
Reacting to the alleged incident, Mokoena took to Twitter to join in the conversation, posting that:
#BabesWodumo’s abuser must be arrested with immediate effect and spend a very long time in jail. Justice must set an example
In response to his tweet, Mzansi had wanted to know why he had named Wodumo but not Mampintsha, had he forgotten his name?
Mokoena had quickly come to his own defense, insisting that he was a 'lawmaker' and couldn't do things 'out of anger'. He has since edited his post to include the alleged abuser's name, clearly caving in to pressure.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Mampintsha has been arrested after a short but effective manhunt by the authorities. He is expected to appear in court to answer for his actions.
Here are just a few reactions to Mokoena's post:
