Ayanda Borotho is one of South Africa’s leading ladies. Over the years, we have seen the star successfully show off her acting chops on various shows including Wounds, Nqobile, and Nomzamo.

However, her role as Phumelele Zungu on Isibaya is her most memorable and the one that transitioned her from just being an actress to being a household name. In her illustrious career, we have seen her go from comedy and drama and that is the mark of a great thespian.


Not only is Ayanda an entertainer but she is also one of the most charitable stars in this part of the world.

In the wake of the KZN floods that have killed at least 448 people, local celebrities and community workers have been doing their best to alleviate the situation of the people of Kwazulu Natal, however, Ayanda is not happy about one thing.

Taking to her Instagram, Ayanda spoke out against people who post images of those they assist, “I get it. People are out there helping out in whatever way they can. KZN is reeling from disaster. It's a mess, guys. What we see in the news reports is nothing,” she wrote in part.

The actress then went on to further explain what upset her about the posts, “But can we please stop posting the people affected? Post the destruction, not the people. This is not about you. It's not about us. It's about those affected."

In conclusion, Ayanda then went on to write, "Post what you are doing, your groceries and blankets. These we post to encourage people to give and raise funds but going as far as posing for pictures, posting Imisamo where clothes of there children and family members are laid in memoriam, women on grieving mattresses. What is that about? Nenzani exactly? Where's the dignity in that,?."
Take a look at the scathing post below:


A couple of days ago, Somizi shared a heartfelt post about the situation in KZN, taking to his social media, he said in a video, "Good morning, I hope its a good morning, I woke up with a heavy heart because I know someone out there is not having a good morning. I couldn't shake off what's going on in KZN, the floods... I see it trending on Twitter, TikTok, everyone is talking about it and my question is, are we doing something about it as urgent as this thing is, it is very urgent?” asked Somizi.

The star went on to say that he will be doing his part and that he believes each and everyone can also help in some way, "I want to do my part and I believe each and everyone that's watching right now is capable of doing something, the entire country can do something right now, today!" he urged his followers. 

“I have clothes that can help a lot of people... & I have friends that I know can contribute immensely and I'm going to challenge them as well to give as much as they can, this is so sad"

He then concluded by challenging his famous and generous friends to help, “I'm going to challenge Cassper, I'm going to challenge MamKhize, and I'm going to challenge Theo Baloyi from Bathu."

What do you guys think? Do you think Ayanda has a fair point? Weight in on our comments section.
