- Mzansi actress, Manaka Ranaka, took to social media to share her thoughts on the woman who killed her four children
- Zinhle Maditla pleaded guilty to poisoning her four children - aged between 11 months and eight years old - with rat poison
- Manaka pointed out that children were often abused by the women who was meant to protect them
Mzansi actress, Manaka Ranaka was heartbroken after reading the reports of a mother who poisoned her four children recently.
According to TshisaLive, the mother, Zinhle Maditla, pleaded guilty on four charges of murder at the Middelburg High Court on Monday, 9 September after allegedly poisoning her children with rat poison.
The children were aged between 11 months and eight years old. Maditla turned herself into the police in December last year after she told relatives to go to her house, where her children’s bodies were found wrapped in blankets.
The Generations: The Legacy actress, like many fellow South Africans, followed the court proceedings and took to social media to share her thoughts on the trial.
Manaka shared a screenshot of the woman in court and another woman who killed her two children allegedly for “getting in the way of her sex life” on Instagram, saying that children were often abused by women meant to protect them.
She wrote: “When it comes to child abuse, we women take the cup shame… And don’t even try to deny it.”
The actress noted several reports of children being abused at crèche and by domestic helpers as evidence that women can sometimes be trash too.
“All these crèche videos with female child minders or teachers abusing our children at school and domestic helper videos ill-treating their boss’s helpless children. We are trash. It’s time we start pointing the trash finger at ourselves too.”
Meanwhile, six days ago, Briefly.co.za reported that actress Manaka Ranaka isn't feeling very patriotic at the moment - she's ashamed to be South African. Her strong feelings of shame stem from the xenophobia in Mzansi that seems to worsen with every passing day.
Like most of South Africa, Manaka Ranaka is deeply upset by the xenophobic attacks in Mzansi. She's so upset that she admitted to being ashamed of being South African, reports TimesLIVE.
The actress said this when she was commenting on a post that was shared by Mthokozisi Ndaba, the 2017 Idols SA runner-up.
