- Bonang Matheba has once again expressed her interest in entering politics
- The media personality was reflecting on the unemployment stats when she said that Mzansi should vote for her
- Bonang had previously hinted at an interest in politics after it became possible for independent candidates to run
Bonang Matheba has almost done it all, the only thing remaining is becoming president of the country. But it seems that goal is something that's on the media mogul's bucket list. After seeing the recent unemployment stats, Bonang took to social media to tell fans to vote for her instead.
In a light-hearted post, Bonang tweeted:
"Cela ni vote-ele mina ke!" ("Please vote me for me then!")
Although the post may have been in jest, recent rules have allowed for the entry of an independent candidate in the election race. Some social media users had previously said that they would vote for Bonang if she would run for president.
Briefly.co.za had previously reported that the media personality took to social media to hint that leading Mzansi may be on the cards for her. This came after the Constitutional Court ruled that an independent candidate may run for elections.
South Africans have had mixed reactions to the ruling and one particularly interesting reaction came from Bonang Matheba. The media mogul said that she would consider standing for presidency when a tweep suggested that she should.
Briefly.co.za reported that the Constitutional Court declared the Electoral Act unconstitutional on Thursday morning. Justice Mbuyiseli Madlanga handed down the judgment after the New Nation Movement sought to allow for an independent candidate to run for elections. The group had challenged Electoral Act 73 of 1998, adamant that it infringes on the right to exercise individual political choices.
In other news, Kelly Khumalo is not done celebrating her birthday. The songstress recently took to social media to post more saucy pics from what looked like a solo celebration. Draped in luxurious white and rocking a gorgeous lace-front wig, Kelly seemed to be having the time of her life.
Of course you can't have a proper birthday celebration without a glass of bubbly, and that's exactly what the vocalist was holding in her hand to quench her thirst.
