Peeps slammed Warras for defending Shimza. They told him the aim of the investigation is to find out if there was any corruption involved when the tender was given to Shimza but not about the R150 000 amount.
"South African celebs never forget to defend their privilege no matter the crime. So now it is a waste of time to investigate suspected criminal acts because someone is world standard."
"The point is not the amount but the act bhuti."
"Corruption is key here, not the amount."
"You like your friend and you think he’s a good person. I’ll tell you quickly, the fact that he didn’t know what was cutting with the tender process means he’s f**ked us. Should just pay the department back and move on with his life."
Nathi Mthethwa says Natasha Thahane made a direct request to him for R1m funding:" Investigate this nonsense"
