We have a lot of celebrities who managed to obtain their qualifications overseas and one of those people in the South African actress and model Amanda Du point, who obtained her qualifications in the united states. There are so many very popular people in the country that seem to have obtained their qualifications outside the country but most seem to be wealthy people or those who come from middle-class families.
Well, Natasha gave us this news on The podcast hosted by Mac, where she revealed that she received over R1m in funds from the government after reaching out to politician Baleka Mbete.
According to a News24 article, she said that “I asked Mam’ Baleka (Mbete) and was like, ‘Mama, I need to go back to school. I’ve been accepted... I don’t know what I’m going to do, can I have funds? Please arrange something for me.’ She managed to speak to (the department) Arts and Culture and they were able to help me,”.
As we all know that the young actress is the granddaughter of Desmond tutu. People are starting to get sceptical about why she got the funds anyway because there are a lot of students who were struggling with getting funding here in South Africa, but it seems she got it very easy. And it seems like it is an easy process for her to get those funds.
It seems that people are not so happy about this on Twitter.
Natasha added that she then “made a call” to Baleka and asked her to help get her money to study. Baleka then allegedly reached out to the department of arts to arrange the money, Which amounted to more than a million rands.
