South Africans across the country are not satisfied and they are complaining about the proposal to building a flag with almost R22 million by the Department of Sports Arts and Culture. While the complaints about this decision might have not been considered, celebrities have weighed on the matter now.
Bonang Matheba has become the first celebrity to be brave enough and express her dissatisfaction with the work of Nathi Mthethwa as the Minister in the Sports, Arts and Culture Department. Bonang Matheba took it to social media to express her grievances to the Minister and told her to go away.
According to what Bonang said, Nathi Mthethwa has no clue in what he is doing and he should just leave. Nathi Mthethwa was tagged on the post so that he could see what the celebrity is saying, so that it doesn't just end up as a social media post.
In the other news another media personality Penny Lebyane has tried to defend the Minister's decision of the R22 million flag but was quickly shown the right path. Penny alleged that Mthethwa is not liked by the industry and compared the flag to the Eifel Towers, Statue of Liberty and Christ The Redeemer.
It didn't take long before sports broadcaster Robert Marawa clarified Penny about the outrageous public concern. Marawa highlighted that the structures that Penny is talking about were not flags. "They were not vanity projects in a struggling economy of mass youth unemployment caused by a thieving government." Marawa said as he provided Penny with something to refer from.
Later Penny confessed that she has apparently commented without studying the feasibility document on the Flag to cost 22 Million. "I’m limited there but it doesn’t sound like a lot of money for something that will out live me." Lebyane said.
