Video of Mvelo Makhanya who plays Lindiwe on Scandal crying out after being cyber-bullied about her head

Scandal actress – Mvelo Makhanya who plays Lindiwe on Scandal has gone out to express how disappointed she is with people's behaviour on social media.

In an emotional Instagram live story, the star who was close to tears pleaded with people to do better, especially when it comes to their comments about other people's bodies on social media.

This message comes after an unflattering meme of her head became a topic of discussion on social media.

Mvelo expressed how upset she was at how we treat each other on these apps and how toxic social media as a whole is.

"I guess sometimes you can't be upset about people's opinions but also at the same time, if those opinions are about you, they sure as hell going to bother you. I just really have a huge problem with social media, you've seen how toxic I feel about the space."
I'm just so upset, it's so upsetting that people on social media, you literally go all the way out to always find something wrong with someone, and then use that to bring someone down. I generally don't get it, I don't understand it. What do you gain from doing that? What happens after that? You've broken someones self esteem down and then what. I'm so upset!?"

Mvelo said that she's been trying to block out how she's been made fun of on social media but the meme was so upsetting because her head isn't that big and that her hairstyle wasn't as intensified as it was made out to be when the meme was created.

Her Insta Live video was shared by a number of people who supported her for addressing the issue.

Mvelo also pleaded for people to do better with their behaviour when it comes to these social media platforms.

Deborah Letsoalo rejected R500 000 from Bushiri after her mother died in ECG church

Deborah Letsoalo rejected R500 000 from Bushiri after her mother died in ECG church

DEBORAH Letsoalo (45) claimed Prophet Shepherd Bushiri’s lawyer offered her loved ones R 500 000.

Deborah told the CRL Commission the offer was made two weeks after her mum Sarah Mohlala (70) was buried.

Sarah died during a stampede at the Enlightened Christian Gathering Church on 28 December. “The offer felt like a bribe,” said Deborah.

She said money would not take away the pain of losing her mum. Deborah said the church invited her to visit a branch in Rustenburg, but she refused.

“What if they do something bad to me? I don’t trust them.”
She said Bushiri kept saying he wanted to meet the family, but when the opportunity came he didn’t speak to them. And they believe it's because after you sacrifice a person you can not go to their funeral or have contact with their family.

“We saw him at the hearing, but instead of talking to us he walked off without even greeting us.”

Bushiri’s lawyer, Terence Baloyi, said he never offered anyone money.

“We gave each family R 40 000 to help with the burial. More money will only be paid out if the commission directs us to do so,” said Baloyi.

He said the church never invited her to Rustenburg because they don’t have a branch there.

I Am Marrying My Son Because I Spent Money To Educate Him And I Am Already Pregnant With Him.

I Am Marrying My Son Because I Spent Money To Educate Him And I Am Already Pregnant With Him.

They say wonders they say shall never end, and this just proved to be right as a woman has decided to marry her son whom she is already pregnant with.

The woman and her son claim to be in love with each other and they decided take their relationship to the next level and got marrried considering that the mother, Betty Mbereko (from Mwenezi in Masvingo Zimbabwe) is now six months pregnant and expecting her son’s child, and her grandchild.

Mrs. Mbereko who is 40 years has been a widow for the past 12 years and has been living with her 23-years-old son Farai Mbereko. She confirmed that she is six months pregnant and that she has decided it is better to “marry” her son because she does not want to marry her late husband’s young brothers, whom she says are coveting her.
Betty stunned a village court last week when she said the affair with her son had begun three years earlier and that after spending a lot of money sending Farai to school following the death of her husband, she felt she had a right to his money and no other woman was entitled to it.“Look, I struggled alone to send my son to school and no one helped me. Now you see that my son is working and you accuse me of doing something wrong. “Let me enjoy the products of my sweat,” she told the village court council.

The son, Farai said he was more than prepared to marry his mother and would pay off the dowry(lobola )balance his father had left unpaid to his grandparents.

 According to him, “I know my father died before he finished paying the bride price and I am prepared to pay it off,”. “It is better to publicise what is happening because people should know that I am the one who made my mother pregnant.Otherwise they will accuse her of pr0miscuity.”

'I am a racist‚ I admit it‚ I am sorry' - Angelo Agrizzi expose himself

Angelo Agrizzi 'I'm racist, I agree, judge me on that, it's fine".

These were the words of former Bosasa chief operation officer Angelo Agrizzi admitting being a racist at the Zondo commission.

Agrizzi has spent the last eight days at the Zondo commission giving testimony about how Bosasa allegedly paid millions of rand in bribes to top government officials in exchange for contracts.

The zondo commission listened to a tape in which Agrizzi was recorded making racial slurs, repeatedly.

He told the commission that he knew they were recording him but didn't know it was a trap.

He said he would love the commission to hear the bad part of the whole three hours of the clip which has never been played.

Agrizzi said that his racist rant was directed towards Gumede and Papa Leshabane.

“Those two had made threats to me and towards my family. Yes, I was wrong in expressing these sentiments, however, when people wrong you then one may lose their cool,” he said.

He said he made the statements in the privacy of his own home.

Judge Zondo asked him if that excuses his racism and Agrizzi said he has no excuse.

Said Agrizzi: "I was wrong and there's no excuse. When people threaten you, you do stupid things. This is not an excuse.”
Zondo told him that what “I have heard you say is totally unacceptable but i will still examine your evidence property in the way a judge should deal with it”.

He says he think those who recorded him did so for their own protection.

Pretorius wants to clarify that he knew at the time he was being recorded and that it was not something he realised with hindsight. "I thought I could control it. Evidently I couldn't." LD

Advocate Paul Pretorius, SC, told him that his remarks are "nakedly racist and grossly offensive," said Agrizzi: "I'm racist, I agree, judge me on that, it's

fine". Agrizzi said he's paying the price for the remarks.

 “My children couldn't go to varsity, they had to work from home,” he said.
