- Mzansi social media users were left reeling by reports that EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu is dating Lorna Maseko

- Many have shared their thoughts on the rumours of the rather unexpected union
Mzansi social media users are reeling from the headlines romantically linking Lorna Maseko and EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu. According to reports, the pair have been seeing each other for some time now.
Sunday World reported that Shivambu's marriage ended a while ago - just before the last general elections. The politician allegedly did not disclose it to the public as he did not want it to negatively affect their campaign.
The publication further reports that Maseko and Shivambu have been dating for two years now. The media personality generally keeps her private life out of the spotlight.
However, the pair were reportedly spotted together in public on multiple occasions, including at the DStv Delicious Festival and the Durban July.
Mzansi social media users had mixed reactions to the reports. While many decided to drink water and mind their business, others could not deal.
Twitter user Undlunkulu_Xoli said:
"I’m so happy for Lorna. Floyd is such an intellectual, she’ll never have to deal with boring conversations with no substance like how some of us have been subjected to."
"Lorna maseko Ujola no Floyd Shivambu??!!!!!!! LORNA MASEKO no FLOYD SHIVAMBU????? 2020 Uyinja man (2020 is a dog)!!! Does she have no aspirations of having beautiful babies????"
"Wow Lorna just had to go and settle for Floyd out of all the men in the world."
"Their entanglement is serious."
"One thing I respect about women, among others, is that they see opportunities where us men don't."
