Actress Natasha Thahane has issued a statement about the R1 million funds she received to go study at the New York Film Academy in 2017.
In an interview with MacG, she revealed that she did not have funds to go study in New York.
She then said she called the former speaker of Parliament, Baleka Mbete, to organise funds for her, which she did.
However, tweeps were furious with this and said some students really need funding but they do not get it because they are not well connected.
Recently, Natasha released a statement saying she didn’t receive the fund from Baleka Mbete but from the Department of Sports, Arts and Culture.
