Dineo Langa and Busiswa engage in heated Twitter exchange

Dineo Langa fired back at Busiswa, who commented on one of her posts about someone flouting COVID-19 regulations, however, Busiswa was mistaken on who was being referred to.

Dineo Langa took to Twitter on Sunday, 24 January 2021, to voice her concerns and outrage at South African politicians who have been publicly disregarding the rules and regulations put in place to combat the spread of the coronavirus. The actress stated, “There is a level of irony and reality in that moment. One that says taxpayers can get arrested for not wearing a mask, but politicians won’t. Everyone must be called out.”

Acclaimed musician, Busiswa, then accused Dineo of being insensitive towards the late Jackson Mthembu’s daughter, Thuli, who she assumed was being spoken about. Busiswa responded, “You can’t be a school principal on ‘she wanted attention’ vibes… COVID is dealing everyone a sad goodbye.”

Dineo was immediately taken aback by the singer’s response, and explained that she was mistaken on who was being referred to. She stated, “You read to respond and not to understand. This wasn’t about Thuli. This was about the Mpumalanga MP who ignored COVID-19 protocols.”

Busiswa subsequently acknowledged her mistake and retracted her initial comment.
