Mzansi thinks Malcolm X is BI Phakathi, annoyed with his behaviour
When the self-claimed philanthropist appeared in court, people thought he was the popular BI Phakathi, Mzansi's modern-day Saviour who showers needy people with money. Phakathi's identity remains a mystery.
Those familiar with Malcolm were bored with his brand:
"All those years he kept threatening to jump eBraam after being eVerts for 10 yrs & Mam Winnie kept saving him. We coul'dve been spared this drama."
"Could Malcom X be BI Phakathi?"
@jazi_cee was annoyed:
"This one is always in the midst of some controversy, uthanda izinto."
"Why is he called Malcom X please."
"I’ve been asking myself for years ba where does this man takes the money."
"He’s a fraud, one time I won a book from him on Instagram and I never got anything!"
"He was in entertainment business before and then went to other business known by him."
