Award-winning actor and comedian, Siyabonga ‘Siya B’ Hadebe has found himself on the wrong side of the law. The talented artist was recently nabbed by the police in Kwa-Zulu Natal. In the video that has been circulating on social media, the police appear to have handcuffed the actor after seemingly causing a car accident – which was a result of driving under the influence.
One of the police officers even called him out for setting a bad example as a public figure. However, this isn’t the first time that Siyabonga Hadebe has had a brush with the law. In April 2019, the It’s Complicated actor violated the terms of his protection order, which prohibited him from coming near the mother of his children and fellow artist, Lerato Mvelase.
Popular entertainment site, Media Girl Chronicles posted the following video of Siya getting arrested. Another local star that has been nabbed for drunk driving is actress, Khanya Mkangisa. Just as is the case with Siya B, there was a video circulating on the Internet, where the 30-year-old actress is heard having a heated argument with the police officer.
The petite actress later spoke out about the incident, calling it ‘humiliating’. During an interview with DJ Fresh on Metro FM, she said the following:
“I don’t like to play victim. I was in the wrong. No one should ever be driving under the influence, for whatever reason. Even be like, ‘It’s just up the road’ (or) ‘I am just quickly dropping someone off’. That shouldn’t have happened – that I acknowledge – but keep the same energy, treat me like you would everyone else.” Drinking and driving is just a big NO-NO.
