SA Viewers Drag "Sexist" Show #Mnakwethu

The show is trending for the wrong reasons.

Mzansi Magic's new reality show, Mnakwethu is seemingly not striking a chord with the viewers.


Mnakwethu is premised around all things relating to Isithembu (polygamy). Men who wish to pursue the polygamy route, write in to the show, with the hopes of being guided by well-known polygamist, Musa Mseleku of Uthando Nes'thembu fame.

The show is understandably meant to enlighten the viewers about the chronicles and dialogue around the institution of Isithembu.

However, scores of viewers, especially women, have noted how this program shows a total disregard for women and the original intent of polygamy that is practised within African cultures.

One such female is Isibaya actress and staunch feminist, Ayanda Borotho. She recorded four lengthy videos on Instagram, where she schooled ignorant peeps about the actual reasons behind the formation Isithembu.

''Thoughts???? I stopped watching from the 2nd episode but I hear last night's show was trending. I have no intentions of disrespecting the choices other women make but this is what I write about in the book.... cultural indoctrination that has us women by their balls!''

Tweeps wasted no time in sharing how disappointed they're, at the tone and general structure of the show, #Mnakwethu.
