A local man may have bitten off more than he could chew after taking to social media with his views about cheating in romantic relationships. According to Lunga Thwema (@Thwema1), otherwise known as “Mr Red Flag” online, infidelity is a concept invented by white people.
He posted a controversial tweet where he wrote:
“Cheating is a concept created by white people in order to break up black families. But you guys aren’t ready for that conversation.”

What one person considers cheating, someone else may not. Nonetheless, cheating is unfaithfulness in a marriage or relationship. It can severely strain a relationship and the people involved.
Such affairs can leave the other person feeling devastated, alone, betrayed and confused. Sometimes, couples can repair the relationship. Other times an affair ends a relationship, or even more sadly, families break down leading to dysfunctionality in many ways.
Saffas clapped back at “Mr Red Flag”, taking to the comments to share their views and opinions on his bold statement. While few responded with sarcasm, others asked him to elaborate on his views and many put him in his place.
“Sure. If your wife/ girlfriend gets with another man she is not cheating, they just want to break up the family.”
“Uzoya nje kodwa ezulwini Lunga mucabanga?”
“If you're saying that before cheating there was polygamy then that too was invented by a man for his own benefit. Not the benefit of society as a whole or his wives, there was no nobility there. Just a man wanting multiple cakes.”
“Cela iThread uchaza, asizwa kahle.”
"Western norms are punitive, whereas Africans are interventionist. The term "cheating" criminalises, "akaziphathi Kahle, uyafeba" focuses on ill behaviour that can be redeemed. Africanness is rooted in humanizing. A "cheating" partner would be fined a cow. Not this western do or die!"
“Okay Idk how much merit this take has but I'm pretty sure we've grown enough to know right from wrong. I don't know about blaming a whole other race for what your partner chooses to do. Ai but that's just my opinion.”

“You’re living up to your name Mr Red Flag.”
“Y’all understand this but can’t understand that abandoning your kids is also breaking families? A man starting a new fam every 3 years, abandoning them, being problematic when it comes to financial aid knowing the reality of the costs it takes to keep the household going?! Men with 5 1st-borns!”
Saffas spill the tea on why they cheated
In a separate story, Briefly News reported that Mzansi is apparently not afraid to confess their cheating ways on a public platform with everyone reading.
We at Briefly News dared to ask a question many people don't want to know the answer to because sometimes ignorance is bliss. We asked:
"Have you ever cheated on your partner? Why did you do it?"
In fine style, Mzansi came out baring their souls and using a social media platform to air their dirty laundry. The comment section will have you in shock at the reasons people cheat and will make you feel like no one is safe from this five-letter word, including you.
