Muvhango’s James Says Covid-19 Is A Money Making opportunity
Actor and media personality Dingaan Mokebe (ka Khumalo) has said that people should take advantage of the Covid-19 pandemic to make money and get rich. The talented actor who is well known for portraying James Motsamai on SABC 2 soapie Muvhango has said that if you are not making money from Covid-19, then you are probably not smart.
Dingaan who also doubles as a social commentator shared these sentiments on social media platform Instagram.
The Muvhango actor made the bold declaration after being impressed by his new face mask. The transparent mask which covers the lower half of the face impressed Dingaan so much that he took to social media to show it off.
He highlighted that the Covid-19 pandemic and the attendant lockdowns are forcing people to be innovative. The actor went on to say that he is not going to get the Covid-19 vaccine because he feels that the new masks that are being made are sufficient to protect him from the disease. Dingaan also seemed to have some pointers for another type of mask that he wants the designers to make.

Dingaan’s message seems to not have gone down too well with some people who argued that many families are struggling to cope. Due to the restrictions of the lockdowns, some people have been left unemployed and without a source of income.
This has forced governments, not just in South Africa, but across the world to offer social grants to the poor and vulnerable members of the community.
Judging by the tone of Dingaan’s voice when he proclaims that people who are not making money are probably not smart, people should not take his sentiments seriously or personally. He seems to be joking.
