Rich Somizi Slammed After Making Fun Of Poor People

Published

on

Media personality Somizi Mhlongo has once again landed on the wrong side of social media when he made a joke that triggered many, considering the unemployment rate in the country.

Somgaga is currently living it large whilst on vacation in Durban with his best pals and his social media feeds are filled with snaps of everything pricey. In a video of he and husband Mohale Motaung-Mhlongo on vacation in KwaZulu-Natal at a nature reserve in Ematendeni, Somizi can be heard mocking his friends and describing them as poor.

Standing at the top of the tree house, Somizi looked down at his friends and jokingly screamed “hello poor people.”

It was only a handful of people who found the joke funny, but a lot of people thought it was done in poor taste. He was labelled as mean and degrading especially for a public figure.

Defending himself he said the joke was directed at his friends, “I hope you understand that this was directed at my friends down there as a joke they would get. Thanks.”

A comment from a tweep which said, “Yoh, poor people. That is so mean and degrading. Never expected that from you, thought u encourage and motivate people. but with all the headlines u making lately, I can believe it. disappointing

“Are you in that video? Are you one of my friends down there who are not offended by the joke? Why are you personalising this? Heal please. What and who you are has nothing to do with me,” Somizi answered.

Somizi is also spending some time in KZN to celebrate Vusi Nova’s birthday and Moshe Ndiki joined in on the festivities. In a video posted by Somizi, the two were affirming their love and support for each other as friends. Somizi can be heard reminding Moshe that he is going to spoil him and ensure he has a good time, there could only be one reason why Moshe would need some cheering up.

FORMER Jam Alley presenter and rapper Thato “T’do” Mahlatsi is expected to appear in court on Monday, 29 November for impersonating a soldier.

The 38-year-old was bust on Thursday, 25 November by Community Police Forum members in Orlando East, Soweto, while wearing a full military uniform.

The CPF members handed him over to Diepkloof cops, who put him behind bars.

Police spokesman Captain Kay Makhubele said: “The suspect was arrested for impersonating a soldier and he will appear in court soon.”

According to police sources, this was the second time Thato was spotted wearing military uniform in a week.

“Members of the CPF said the first time, they saw him in uniform leaving a house. They asked him what he was doing at that house because they suspect someone is selling drugs there. He claimed he was also a community patroller and they let him go.

“When they saw him leaving the same house for the second time, they confronted him again. His story didn’t make sense. They asked him why he was patrolling alone and they also asked him about the military fatigues and he couldn’t explain himself, so they handed him over to us,” said a source.

At the height of his fame, Thato was a member of popular duo Zulu Mob with Desmond “Dez” Radebe.

Thato is also one of the people behind the success of Jub Jub’s massive hit song Ndikhokhele.

The Department of Correctional Services (DCS) has confirmed that convicted murderer, Paralympian Oscar Pistorius, has been moved from a correctional facility in Pretoria to a prison in Gqeberha in the Eastern Cape.

DCS spokesperson Singabakho Nxumalo said the move was part of a process in which Pistorius is eligible for parole after serving half of his 13-year sentence.

The disgraced athlete has been serving the sentence for the murder of his model girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp, on Valentine’s Day in 2013.

Steenkamp’s parents live in the Eastern Cape.

“The transfer is necessitated by the need to commence with the processes of a victim-offender-dialogue as the victims are based in Gqeberha. Offenders participate in the victim-offender-dialogue as part of their rehabilitation path, wherein they are able to acknowledge the harm they have caused to their victims and the society at large,” Nxumalo added.

He said the victim-offender-dialogue was an internal process.

“Victim-offender dialogues are sensitive, emotional and inconsolable; hence they are presided [over] by highly trained officials who ought to ensure that all parties derive value from the process. DCS is unable to pre-empt the timeframe as this will be guided by the level of preparedness by all participants.”

He added that victim-offender-dialogues were not a parole placement process, but a programme that took place before an offender could be considered for parole.
