The Bala Family star called out Juan Pierre Needman, a second-in-charge of the Gordon's Bay Boat Angling Club and the owner of Bertie's, for allegedly attacking Lwando. According to Zwai, the scuffle may have been sparked by his family taking photos of the establishment:

"We paid our bill plus a generous tip as would be the expectation from any other race. But walking around and taking photos is for whites only, it seems. I will ensure the establishments are not off the hook."
"I call on everyone who can join us in making it clear that there’s no space for entitled racists in any part of our land, and can make it to Strand Magistrates Court on 7 February.""

Speaking to Briefly News, Zwai said the incident could have escalated:

"Fortunately, no one else was hurt; it was very close. I escaped a fist. The case was postponed to 7 February 2024."
