Fikile Mbalula, SA's Head of Elections, claimed that there's no way Bonang Matheba will be supplying sparkling wine for the Presidential Inauguration on 25 May, and her fans are not impressed with him at all.
Bonang Matheba announced that she'll be supplying the drink of the day at the Presidential Inauguration on 25 May, and her fans were so proud of her.
However, shortly after that, Head of Elections, Fikile Mbalula, said on Twitter that there's no such endorsement and now Bonang's fans are not happy with him.
Briefly.co.za readers reacted quite strongly and even got a little personal when they commented on Mbalula's denial of a deal with the entertainer.
One Facebook user, Nkululeko Ngcanga, asked if Mbalula had any authority to plan what happens at the inauguration.
Is mbalula the planner of the event as he is denying this?
Muzie Khuzwayo Phakathwayo agreed, and even said he should get lost.
Mbalula is not government spokesperson,so he must voetsek.
Other users felt disgusted by what they feel is Mbalula's lack of support for women in business.
Mbalula ayo ndoda le sies always on womans busines hay suka feel sorry for wife
Why not! We want it there, Bonangs bubbly or nothing. We support our own black girl.
In general, people just thought that Mbalula is jealous of Bonang for whatever strange reason.
