Natasha Thahane is an actor and entertainment who is loved by most South Africans because of how peaceful she is living as a celebrity. She was hosted by MacG on a recent interview where she spilled tea about something that she never thought people will grasp.
Natasha was apperently accepted to study abroad and like most other students, she needed funding. Natasha said she needed a million Rands to cover her tuition and that was only for the first semester. She had made a quick call to mam Baleka Mbete who is a head speaker at parliament, whom apperently made calls to other ministers in order for Natasha to get funding. This got SA shook but also angry because unlike other students, Natasha did not apply for funding. Natasha made a call and immediately got funding while other students struggle with funding to the point where they had to strike for NSFAS to pay for their registration fees.
This is a sad reality because it shows that in South Africa, if you don't have connections you won't get anything. What do you think about this? Do you think mam Baleka needs to make a statement about this?
