If people have the freedom to parade the goods on red carpets,then others have the freedom to discuss it,as long as it’s respectful,she’s not doing it so that people don’t discuss it.— Bonnie Mbuli (@BonnieMbuli) November 13, 2017
Here were some of the responses she got.
The thing is usis Zodwa is out there owning her body and not 'hurting' anyone. My opinion about it is the one that is torn. Xa ndithi 'ndingenaphi' it's because I don't really have to have an opinion mna because she is not hurting anybody.— Sis Anele (@anelesol) November 13, 2017
