- Bonang Matheba shared her frustration regarding the government's lack of reaction to the scourges of xenophobia and violence against women and children in the country
- Fans asked Queen B why she didn't FaceTime her old friend, President Cyril Ramaphosa about the issues
- But Bonang clapped back, saying she would if she could
Mzansi TV personality, Bonang Matheba, responded to the calls from fans to speak to President Cyril Ramaphosa about the femicide scourge and xenophobic attacks that are currently plaguing South Africa.
Fans wanted her to speak up about the issues and express her anger over the government's apparent inaction while the country stands in a major crisis. While protesters took to the streets across the country to highlight the plight of women and various reports of femicide made headlines, Bonang took to Twitter to vent her anger about the government’s lack of action.
She tweeted: “So. Damn. Annoying. This government is the absolute worst! Go outside!!! Go see what’s happening outside!”
Bonang is among several celebs who have called the government out since news of the femicide uproar broke.
People felt that calls for President Ramaphosa to take action against the crisis have fallen on deaf ears, and suggested that Bonang FaceTime the president like she did during the national election campaigns earlier this year.
But Bonang responded to the call, like she usually does, telling her fans that she would if she could.
Bonang also called on everyone to stop with the games and take country’s current situation - which she described as a “national crisis” - seriously.
She tweeted: “Also, the block button is on overdrive! This isn’t the time for your nonsense. Go make jokes with your friends on WhatsApp! Nxa!”
Meanwhile, yesterday, Briefly.co.za reported that since the abuse of women in South Africa has been taking centre stage in the country, the social media streets have been a sombre place. When DJ Euphonik shared his view on the matter, saying men are trash, it wasn't as well-received as he might have hoped it would be.
Bonang Matheba, an ex of the DJ, used the opportunity to express how she feels - all men are trash.
She commented on Euphonik's tweet with the word 'nonke', which can be seen as a double burn. It implies that all of SA's men are terrible and is a word that Euphonik came up with himself.
