- Samkelo Ndlovu is no longer entertaining questions about her roots and origins
- Many have been questioning how she can be Xhosa with a last name like Ndlovu and she's done with it
- The actress says she won't be proving herself to 'tribalists' any more
Local actress, Samkelo Ndlovu, has just about had it with people questioning her origins and heritage.
She is Xhosa but people wonder how that can be with her last name being Ndlovu.
Taking to social media, Samkelo made it clear that she will no longer entertain the 'tribalists'.
"I'm no longer explaining how I am Xhosa with Ndlovu as a surname. I just won’t answer any more. I have nothing to prove."
Samkelo feels that by asking these kinds of questions 'tribalists' are encouraging a narrative of divide and conquer.
"Tribalists don’t see how much they are perpetuating the 'divide and conquer' narrative. So over it and I will no longer engage."
Samkelo is very proud of her heritage as a South African. Briefly.co.za reported earlier that she won't be teaching her baby girl to talk English at home.
She feels that teaching little Zhuri Zulu and Xhosa is more important and that English can come when she's in school and learning it with other children.
Her pride is clearly reflected in how she's raising her daughter and no one can argue with that.
