- Minnie Dlamini-Jones was livid regarding a dreadful ordeal she experienced at a recent work event
- A journalist tried to get a comment from her regarding her brother, Khosini Dlamini's passing
- Minnie felt that it was an invasion of her personal space, and that even though she had to show up at a work event, she was still hurting and needed time before she could speak about her brother's passing
Media personality, Minnie Dlamini-Jones, took to social media to share an encounter she had with a journalist during an event she attended recently. This was the first public event she had attended since her brother, Khosini Dlamini’s death.
Minnie claimed she was approached by a male journalist at a work event who asked her how she was doing. Minnie was being honest in her reply when she said: “I’m ready for the year to be over, I’m okay, just keeping up appearances, mate to mate.”
Her brief response led the journalist to come back five minutes later and Minnie says he invaded her personal space by asking, “Are you sure you want that to be your quote on your brother’s passing?"
Mrs Jones was livid. She took to social media to share the insensitive response by the journalist as well as explain to her followers that she was not ready to talk about her late brother.
One could imagine the courage it took for the sports personality to get back to work so soon after Khosini’s passing. Minnie claimed that her job requires her to show up at such social gatherings even though she is still hurting.
She also thanked her fans for showing her immense support during this difficult time in her life.
Fans showered Minnie with more support and love. Take a look below at some of the comments:
