Arthur Mafokate stirs rage in the hearts of many after it was reported that he benefitted over R4.5 million from the South African Government.
The music legend received tenders from the Gauteng Department of Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation and the National Arts Council (NAC) Mafokate’s daughter Owami also benefited over half a million rand from the same department in 2022 for her Queendom Media.
According to Sunday World, a written reply to Parliament by the Gauteng Department of Sport, Arts, Culture and Recreation showed that the department awarded a R1.8 million tender to the Kwaito star’s company, Roadshow Marketing. Social media users are triggered by this news and have called for the arrest of the musician.
“We have these many cases of celebrity thieves and politicians. These guys go to court, pay bail, and then the cases get postponed forever. There’s one of Mabuyakhulu’s in KZN since 2012. Till today, a straightforward case of stealing R28m is stuck. This is disgusting,” a tweep wrote.
