Previous generations actress Thuli Phongolo shot her maid, who worked until midnight


DJ and former Generations: The Legacy actress Thuli Phongolo has come under attack on social media after her post about maids rubbed people the incorrect way and backfired against her.

The actress played the role of Namhla Diale, the daughter of Lucy Diale (Manaka Ranaka) on the serial Generations: The Legacy between 2014 and 2018. She left the show when her character was written off in 2018.

The actress’s post about how her maid had stayed up till well after midnight to assist her undress didn’t come well with most of the people . Writing on her Instagram stories, Thuli Phongolo wrote,

“Guys, not my helper expecting me till 00:28 to assist me with my dress and my PJs laid out for me! I appreciate her such a lot , I can’t!!!!”


Unsurprisingly, the post caused mixed reactions among social media users with some saying that if Thuli really wants to understand her maid and domestic , she should make sure that she works reasonable hours. Others accused the actress of being insensitive by actually posting this on social media.

However, other social media users rushed to Thuli’s defence saying that the actress had not done anything wrong or distasteful since her maid was doing the work of her own volition without being forced.

Below are a number of the reactions from social media over Thuli Phongolo’s post about her maid:


The uproar over how celebrities treat their maids and domestic comes just a couple of days after The Queen’s actress Zenande Mfenyana was dragged for a clear insensitive post about her help.
