An old-school Mzansi man reminded ladies to never let their helpers enter their bedroom or serve their man food because they are playing with fire if they do. This sparked a huge debate on social media.
Our parents have very different beliefs about what we do. What happened 50 years ago will not necessarily happen now, however, their irrational advice will always leave us weary despite our better judgement, LOL.

Twitter user @Moss98517503 reminded ladies of some old advice which made clear that no helper will enter your and your husband's sacred space (bedroom) nor will she perform any wifely duties (cook for him). It is believed that this is how a nanny becomes a wife.
“A maid must never make food for your husband or enter your bedroom. Otla itshola.”

Man’s post sparks debate leaving the people of Mzansi divided
Women felt offended, to say the least. A lot of Mzansi babes felt that people need to realise that women now work full day jobs and need help, it is no longer a luxury. However, there were some men, and even women, out there who felt this message stands and any woman who does not abide by it should be prepared to welcome their helper as a second wife.

Take a look at some of the comments, it got heated:
“Imagine waking up at 5, exercising, prepare for work, come back at 5:30, homework awaits, your own studies. When will you have the time to cook and clean? Or maybe you think women have super powers?”
“Women in here please take a few. Your husband is your no1 priority no one but you must make sure your bedroom is taken care of and feeding your king is top your duty.
“A maid doesn't enter parents’ bedroom. NEVER EVER.”
“Husband is a problem, if she doesn't enter our room then who should clean the room?”
“Once again women must be made uncomfortable to keep a man. If men don’t want ukudliswa they must clean the bedroom every morning themselves. I can’t imagine rushing to a early morning ward round or being post call at midday with the added stress of cleaning a bedroom”

Tear jerking post about domestic workers hits Mzansi in the feels: “We are just domestics, the maid”
In more heart-warming domestic worker-related news, Briefly News reported that domestic workers have been treated harshly for many years and while laws have been set to help prevent this, it still happens.
They go by many names - domestics, maids, nannies, helpers - but they're all the same. Some are treated like the gold they are and others as if the employer is doing them a service and not the other way around.
Marcia du Pont took to Facebook with a poem by Herman H Le Roux about domestic workers that is sure to leave you feeling all kinds of emotions. The poem explains the lives of domestics from both the good and bad views. While some are treated well, they still face many struggles.
