Media personality Somizi Mhlongo, has slammed CY Frozen Foods, a Musina based butchery, for disrespecting domestic workers following their advert. The butchery has come under a lot of criticism after it posted an advert that, it is open for business during this lockdown and they are selling 'domestic worker's food' which included chicken necks, gizzards, heads and feet on their list.
