SOUTH AFRICANS are in disbelief over what can be dubbed as "corruption connection" which was done by the former ANC chairperson who was also the speaker of parliament.

It is quite saddening that some people who have connections with the high government officials in the ANC or the parliament have everything they need yet some people down the ground do not get their needs fulfilled by the government.

Many young people are chased out of high education institutions for not paying the fees. This is due to the students facing financial constraints.

They have to drop out of varsity and return home having not fulfilled their need to study. Yet at the same time, some privileged celebrities who have connections with the ANC leaders manage to get about a Million rand just to go and study in the United States.

This is quite pathetic, to say the least and has Mzansi fuming with anger.

On Saturday morning, the Queen's actor, Natasha Thahane topped the Twitter trends after her interview on MacG's Podcast and Chill where she revealed that she received over R1 Million in funds from the government after reaching out to politician Baleka Mbete.

To make matters worse, Natasha granddaughter of Desmond Tutu. As we know Tutu is a rich person as he has a lot of funds plus his organisation, Desmond Tutu foundation could have afforded to fund her.

Anyway, Natasha told MacG that when she went to study in the US in 2017, she need help to finance her studies at the New York Film Academy.

She added that she then "made a call" to Baleka and asked her to help get her money to study. Baleka then allegedly reached out to the department of arts to arrange the money- in excess of R1 Million that went towards Natasha's studies.

At the time, Baleka was the speaker of Parliament and the ANC chairperson.

“I asked Mam’ Baleka (Mbete) and was like, ‘Mama, I need to go back to school. I’ve been accepted... I don’t know what I’m going to do, can I have funds? Please arrange something for me.’ She managed to speak to (the department) Arts and Culture and they were able to help me,” she said on the podcast.
