Nomzamo Mbatha responds to major backlash after Arthur Mafokate pic

Sunday Twitter was lit after kwaito star Arthur Mafokate posted pictures of him with and Nomzamo Mbatha taken at the ANC election manifesto launch in Durban. 

The reason for the uproar was due to Mbatha not only being a proud activist but also being a cover star in 2018 on the August Activism Issue of Cosmopolitan SA sporting a bodysuit with words such as "feminist" and "female". 

Mafokate previously made headlines following assault charges laid by his former girlfriend Busisiwe "Cici" Twala. 

Tweeps from all across Mzansi dragged Mbatha for agreeing to pose for a photo with Mafokate with many claiming that she is a "hypocrite" and not a real activist. 

As the Twitter storm raged, Mbatha issued an explanation and apology for the picture. 

Following the apology, many came to the "Isibaya" actresses defence. 

Mafokate also made a public apology to Mbatha on the micro-blogging site and asked that Mbatha not be blamed for the picture. 

IOL Entertainment has reached out to Nomzamo Mbatha for official comment. 

The ANC also condemned the “conduct” of kwaito musician Arthur Mafokate who, according to them, arrived at the launch of the party’s election manifesto in Durban this weekend uninvited and caused "undue mayhem".
