Celebrity real estate businessman TT Mbha rallied his friends and sponsors in what was meant to be a day of golf at the Soweto Country Club and all proceeds go towards charity .
The program was expected to include Social Development minister Lindiwe Zulu and celebrities T-bo Touch, Thomas Mlambo, Andile Ncube, OG Molefe, Stanton Fredericks, and Lira. But due to a protest outside the country club, the fundraiser has been cancelled.
“It is with great disappointment that we have to pull the plug on such a well-organised day of commemoration. We have sponsors, individuals, and media who invested their time, resources, and money in the golf day. But we value people’s lives and cannot put anyone at risk,” TT wrote in a statement.
His team had managed to donate non perishable goods and blankets to six NGO’s within Soweto on Monday 14 June 2021.
“We delivered the good son Monday, so we could have the whole day dedicated for the golf. But due to the protect, we can not go ahead, for the safety of our guests,” TT says.
“You know, this day was supposed to help create employment, build the economy of Soweto and for young Soweto golfers to meet their mentors. This is not how we had planned to commemorate 45 years of the Soweto Uprising,” he adds.
Details regarding the protest to follow.
