Somizi has Mzansi swooning with an announcement that the Somhale Foundation will be helping hundreds of needy families.

Somizi and hubby Mohale Motaung unveiled the new foundation which was founded yesterday and announced plans to help families in Freedom Park and Ekurhuleni.

Aimed at giving back to the community during the coronavirus lockdown the couple announced that they would be handing out R200 000 in Makro vouchers.

The duo encouraged anyone, irrespective of location and means, to join the effort to help out and donate whether it be financial aid or simply old clothing.

Peeps were blown away by the gesture and applauded the pair for actively trying to provide some relief.

But things have been a bit bumpy lately, with Somizi rubbing Minister Fikile Mbalula up the wrong way.

The two men are feuding after Somizi joked that the Transport Minister had filled him in on the lockdown extension before President Cyril Ramaphosa made the actual announcement.

Briefly.co.za reported that Mbalula denied this claim, taking action against Somizi despite Mhlongo releasing a statement online apologising for what he called a bad joke.

“It was a bad joke on my part. I did say to my colleague later that I was joking and that I never spoke to the minister at any point I was just scaring her. Again I'm sorry for the bad joke and I apologise to the minister for such a dangerous statement."
