“My newly-appointed Spokesperson is a dynamic trailblazer who has made an immense contribution towards the African media landscape and is one of the most influential women on the continent. The Department looks forward to working with an eminent and diligent leader.” Said the Minister on Masechaba’s appointment.
“It is an honour and a privilege. I am ready to serve indeed,” she said on her new role as Spokesperson.
We have zero doubt that Masechaba will do an excellent job in her new role. Her track-record and wealth of experience accumulated over the years speak for itself.
The controversial socialite and former radio host, Masechaba Ndlovu is not new to grabbing headlines, especially for very odd reasons. In October she gave the audience a cringe festival with her inappropriate remarks as a master of ceremonies at the media launch of Dream: The Lebo Mathose Story hosted by BET and Ochre Media.
Her introductions of the much-contested cast set to play in Lebo’s story were awkward and the interjections with the panel that followed skewed.
Masechaba interjected while Bahumi Madisakwane, Idols SA Judge Somizi Mhlongo’s daughter, was talking about playing a younger Lebo: “I see your mother is here. I can’t tell the difference between you two. Yo! Somizi chose well. And we are yet to see Somizi and Mohale’s product,” she gushed with loud giggles in between.
When it was brought to Masechaba’s attention that “a journalist in the audience has remarked that the Somizi and his husband Mohale comment is hormophobic,” she ‘apologised’, saying it was not that deep. She emphasised that she was good friends with Somizi.
