South African musician and religious leader, Dr Tumi, recently came under fire after rumours about his stance on homosexuality began doing the rounds again. Based on his public sermons and false claims made by trolls, Dr Tumi had repeatedly been labelled a homophobe, something which did not sit well with him. 

In a two-part video shared on Twitter on Saturday, 21 November 2020, Dr Tumi explained that whilst he was out on a video shoot, he felt it necessary to take time and address his haters, as it was beginning to get to him. He claimed that he had seen comments online earlier in the day which was tarnishing his character, which he felt was unfair as he was not a homophobe and loved everyone equally. 

“There's something that has been bothering me and I thought I should take some time out and address because it's just a misconception and a lie that I feel should not go on ... I don't want people to have the wrong impression… Right from the onset I just want you to know that I am not homophobic. I truly have no reason to hate anyone, I don't hate or discriminate against anyone...” 

He also shared that he knew exactly who the people were that started the rumours but didn’t delve into exactly who they were and why they had begun them. Dr Tumi made it clear that the perpetrators knew the truth about his stance on homosexuality and that was enough for him. 

“And I know that that lie was based on something that was not even true and actually the people who were involved in that know the real truth and they don't have an issue (with me). I was so saddened by it, seeing a few comments about it today because I don't like discrimination or when people are treated badly...”.

Dr Tumi further explained that as a man of God, it is his duty to uphold the teachings of Christ and love everyone equally. He emphasised that he has respect and love for every person despite their love race or sexual orientation that everyone should understand that about him. 

The medical Doctor also clarified that he is aware that some people may not know what he is talking about, and some may know the entire story, however the integral part of his message remains the same as he has said many times before.
