SA's Dr Malinga Stranded After Missing Return Flight
Some users even went as far as to suggest that he walk across the border or hitch hike his way back to South Africa.
Well-known South African singer Dr Malinga found himself stuck in Zimbabwe after missing his flight back home.
The Ngikwenzeni singer had been in Gwanda for a gig, and took to Twitter to announce that he had missed his flight.
His plea for assistance was however, met with sarcastic jokes and memes on social media. Some users even went as far as to suggest that he walk across the border or hitchhike his way back to South Africa.
This is not the first time that Dr Malinga has faced financial difficulties.
In a previous interview on Podcast and Chill with MacG, the musician opened up about his struggles with the South African Revenue Services (SARS), revealing that he owed over R500,000 in taxes.
He even broke down in tears on the show, describing how SARS had auctioned off his belongings and furniture to cover the debt. Despite fans and industry peers raising R100,000 to help him, it seems that Dr Malinga’s financial troubles are far from over.
Despite his previous appeals for financial assistance, Dr Malinga’s missed flight has not elicited sympathy from many South Africans.
Social media users have been quick to mock the musician’s situation, with some even refusing to donate money to help him. Instead, they have suggested that he walk or hitchhike his way back to South Africa.
Here are some of the reactions:
Asisenayo imali nkos’yami 😭..No more Donations for you sorry
Report this to SAPS Tanzania to open a case of missing SAA Zimbabwe flight. You will then be transferred at 10 passed 4. The case will be handled by SAPS Germany as soon as you Land.
