Dr Tumi has been trending on social media ever since he was released on bail for charges pertaining to fraud.
The doctor and his wife handed themselves over to the police and were released on a bail of R3 000 each.
Now social media users have started pulling up old tweets from the gospel singer that may have foretold his alleged knack for crime.
Last year, Dr Tumi tweeted:
“Time to watch Money Heist Season 4. Glad the whole season is uploaded.”
Money Heist is a show about exactly what the title suggests and Mzansi social media users had a field day with it. Here are some reactions:
“This tweet is from 2020 but the dots are connecting now. The maths is mathsing.”
“You should have waited for Season 5, maybe they wouldn’t have caught you.”
“Now you gonna have to watch Prison Break!”
“We never saw it coming yazi... Yet it was hinted.”
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported that gospel singer Dr Tumisang Makweya, better known as "Dr Tumi", has been released on bail along with his wife for allegedly defrauding the National Lotteries Board. The couple handed themselves over to the authorities on Tuesday.
The couple has been released on bail of R3 000 each. They had allegedly handed in grant applications that had been altered to get funds for projects they had planned back in 2018.
The applications were approved and this resulted in R1.5 million being transferred into a private bank account. Dr Tumi has been charged with fraud, along with his wife Kgaogelo Makweya.
Hawk's spokesperson Captain Ndivhuwo Mulamu says that the couple allegedly received R760 000 from the funds that were transferred. Social media users reacted to the news of Dr Tumi's arrest on Twitter.
