Bonang Matheba might be between countries at the moment. This is as the media darling spends her time between South Africa and the United States of late. This is in a continued effort to establish herself as an internationally recognised broadcaster despite her recent Miss Universe snub. However, that does not mean that she is not invested in the happenings of the country, similar to her ex and late Hip-Hop legend Kiernan “AKA” Forbes.

This is as Matheba has been vocal about the manner in which the government has treated its South African artists. Especially during COVID-19 at its height when the state failed to take care of artists who could not earn money as public gatherings and large crowds were prohibited. 

As such, with the recent announcement of the cabinet reshuffle, Matheba has made it clear that her investment in the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture remains unwavering. 

Bonang Matheba has her eyes on Zizi Kodwa already

In light of the cabinet reshuffle announced earlier this week, ANC NEC member and politician, Zizi Kodwa was announced as the new incoming Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture. As soon as his statement was announced, Zizi fast began his media trail speaking on his intention as the new Sports, Arts and Culture Minister. 

Following his second interview with Robert Marawa on 947 recently. When clips of the interview were posted, Bonang returned to Twitter to wish Zizi good luck in his tenure. A tweet which also seemed to suggest that she was keeping a close eye on the minister and his efforts to support artists. 
This comes as Matheba was the watchdog of the axed former Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa. For a couple of years, Matheba was on Mthethwa’s neck for his negligence when it came to supporting artists and sportspersons in their time of need. But was quick to claim their victories as that of the department. 

As such, it did not come as a surprise when she was one of the many members of the general public that welcomed his axing when the cabinet reshuffle was announced. 

As reported at the time Matheba made her tweet directed at Mthethwa’s axing:

Mthethwa who has faced allegations of continued failings in his portfolio has been replaced by Zizi Kodwa, who has been appointed as the replacement for Minister of Sport, Arts, and Culture.

It is no secret that Queen B was not a fan of Nathi's work. Bonang was constantly taking digs at Mthethwa and questioning his competency as Minister of Arts and Culture. Ever since the announcement of the R22 million for a monumental flag, she has been taking digs at him and even called him "useless."

Taking to Twitter after the president reshuffled the cabinet, she tweeted "Wonderful."
