Dr Tumi is trying to put his ongoing scandal behind him for now and resume normal life. However, Mzansi is just not ready to let it go.
Taking to Twitter, the gospel singer posted:
“Se a raga raga mara a se na maatla. Mahlale a fedile. You won’t stop my destiny. All power belongs to God. Love you fam.”
While he did get some support from his loyal fans, others felt like it was just too soon to return to the platform after such a huge scandal.
Check out the mixed bag of reactions:
“When you were chowing you were with your wife and now you want sympathy from the public khohlwa go face the music alone. Your rates are high 250k per hour for visual prayer session.”
“All power definitely belongs to God, and He's exposing the hell out of ya.”
“I like the fact that you scammed the scammers, you are my role model. We shall remain free because we are free.”
“Just clear your name and stop making noise. These allegations can only be tested in court and are serious. I don't care whether you are loved here on Earth or in this imaginary Heaven, I hate those who steal from the public purse.”
“Did the power of stealing come from God too? ... Asking for ANC comrades.”
Briefly News had previously reported that gospel singer Dr Tumisang Makweya, better known as "Dr Tumi", was 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.
