Despite his plea for help, social media responded with mocking jokes and memes, and some users even suggested that he make the journey back to South Africa by walking across the border or hitchhiking.
Dr. Malinga has had financial struggles in the past. During an interview on the “Podcast and Chill with MacG” show, the musician spoke about his issues with the South African Revenue Services (SARS) and revealed that he owed more than R500,000 in taxes.
During the show, Dr. Malinga became emotional and even shed tears while recounting how SARS had auctioned off his belongings and furniture to pay off his debt.

Report this to SAPS Tanzania to open a case of missing SAA Zimbabwe flight. You will then be transferred at 10 passed 4. The case will be handled by SAPS Germany as soon as you Land.
