“A millionaire businesswoman, a convicted fraudster and alleged tax evasion… Do fame and fortune give you a clean slate?”

It wasn’t me, says Mamkhize

Difficult questions, which came with receipts, were thrown at Mamkhize. But when she struggled to answer them, she ended up pointing fingers at the company and not herself.

“But it can’t be me, because I wasn’t… it’s the company.”

The journalist emphasized that there was a guilty verdict and conviction, a claim Shawn denied.

Reacting to the episode, netizens shared their thoughts on the matter. Some noted how impassive Mamkhize was.

Some say she appeared smug during interrogation.

@FransSekonya asked:

She says a company has been convicted. Can a company really be arrested, or is the problem perhaps English?”

@kgosikoena corrected:

“She’s right; a company is legally a person and can be sued in its own name. But the way she asks implies that she thought the documents were stolen when her case ‘disappeared’.”

@MtungwaZikhona claimed:

“Lapho people looked up to this woman and called her hardworking and driven. She is nothing of the sort, I would salute her if she actually completed the tenders she was given but instead she is the greed to show off with ‘wealth’.
