'I Am Sorry' - Simphiwe Dana Apologises For ‘Unemployment’ Comment

Award-winning musician Simphiwe Dana has said she is ready for South Africa to have a woman president.

However, she is not banking on that happening with the governing party.

Dana said this after acting Chief Justice Raymond Zondo criticised Tourism Minister Lindiwe Sisulu for her controversial article in which she slammed the judiciary as “colonised Africans”.

In her opinion piece, “Hi Mzansi, have we seen justice?”, Sisulu took shots at the judiciary and and the country’s legislative framework.

She claimed the Constitution did not work for masses of Africans who languished in poverty and accused politicians of engaging in “stomach politics” at the expense of the poor.

Zondo condemned Sisulu’s comments as an insult to the judiciary. He said Sisulu had no facts to back her claims and called for action to be taken.

Taking to Twitter, Dana said even though she would love to see a woman lead the country, she was not certain that woman should come from the ANC because it was a “lost cause”.

“If the ANC wasn’t such a lost cause, a female president from the camp would be such a breath of fresh air.

“Given that the ANC as a whole has created such destruction, the treatment of Lindiwe Sisulu seems particularly aggressive. But alas, throw the whole thing away.”

Ntsiki Mazwai also expressed that she was “ready for a woman president”.

In a series of tweets, she said that her money was on Sisulu.

“Let’s be clear about something. The male representatives brought us Khwezi and Marikana. You will not have crazy standards for a female president. Not when you come from such trash. Siyavana??

Twitter Users Go Hard On Pearl Thusi Over ’Happy Lockdown’ Post

Mzansi was left shook when e.tv announced that they would be airing the 1997 action-thriller ’Anaconda’ again during prime time on Saturday.

Tweeps were shook when the free-to-air television station teased that it would be airing the 90s movie for the 19th time, even after supposedly showing it for the last time in 2014.

“Y’all been playing this movie since I was my daughters age. Stop it.”

Former Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane also took a jab at the TV station for airing the movie, while throwing shade at the ruling party and said: “You are behaving like the ANC now. You can’t still be showing Anaconda in 2022.”
