- Masechaba Ndlovu is still facing the anger of social media users after she disclosed someone's Covid-19 status without their consent
- The government spokesperson had previously made a similar mistake when she revealed that Babes Wodumo was being abused
- Babes Wodumo is now trending on social media as Mzansi brings that incident back into the spotlight
Babes Wodumo is back as a trending topic but its not for something she did. As South Africans continue to scrutinise Masechaba Ndlovu, the way she previously dealt with Babes Wodumo's abuse story has once again come into the spotlight.
Recall Masechaba exposed that Mampintsha was abusing Babes Wodumo without consulting the gqom artist first. Many felt that this was extremely unprofessional, especially after Babes expressed her discomfort.
Social media users have brought it up again amid the drama surrounding Masechaba's disclosure of Anele Ngcongca's mother's Covid-19 status.
Twitter user AsaKakaza said:
"Kanene Masechaba is the same lady who disclosed Babes Wodumo’s abuse on radio even though was not necessarily ready to disclose! Now she’s doing the same to Anele’s family; disclosing their mother’s illness before they did!! Yho!"
"What was she thinking commenting on soccer anyway... this is not Mamphintsha and Babes wodumo clout-chasing exercise..."
"Masechaba is always too forward. She disclosed whatever was going on with Babes Wodumo prematurely, now she's engaged. Today she's disclosing irrelevant and unconfirmed information about a sensitive matter like death."
Briefly.co.za had previously reported that earlier this week it was reported that the funeral of late footballer Anele Ngconcga (who died in a car accident last month) was postponed.
Reports cited that the postponement came after Ngconcga's mother fell ill. The spokesperson for Minister Nathi Mthetwa, Masechaba Ndlovu subsequently took to Twitter to announce that the funeral was postponed after Ngconcga's mother tested positive for Covid-19.
Social media users and South African tweeps however felt that it may not have been her place to tell everyone that Ngconcga's mother had tested positive for the harrowing virus. Many of them headed to the comment section to share their thoughts.

@Cellular_ZA said: "Mina I'm gonna be honest with you Masechaba Khumalo... your tone is so rude, shame, very rude."
@_AfricanSoil said: "You're so unprofessional WOW!!!! The issue was just around showing respect for Anele Ngcongca as a football player that contributed a lot in this country; all of which you've said was unnecessary."
