- Mzansi social media users chimed in with opinions of their thoughts about the current situation in entertainment
Mzansi television personality and actress Thembisa Mdoda-Nxumalo is the latest celebrity who has expressed her disappointment in the Minister of Arts and Culture, Nathi Mthethwa. Taking to social media, Thembisa tweeted that she wants the minister to be held accountable.
"Then he must resign and hand himself over to the police," she said.
Mzansi performers and artists are not happy with the actions of the National Arts Council. Money was allocated to artists to provide relief from the Covid-19 pandemic but it has been revealed that nobody has received a cent yet.
R300 million was meant to be distributed across the industry but according to Minister Nathi Mthethwa, the funds have somehow "disappeared" and have been misused by senior officials.
Mzansi social media users reacted to Thembisa's tweet online and spoke about what they thought about the situation. Check out some of the reactions below:
"I feel nothing for these artists, they must feel the pain of their lovely ANC. The same ANC that they love so much and become the mascot for is rubbishing them."
"R30 can disappear without a trace, but R300m. Come on this is pure theft, not even mismanagement."
"They need to find that money and prosecute all the thieves involved! Bathong! Why are they sounding so defeated?"
