Mayibuye Mandela apologised for inappropriate language used on Mac G’s Podcast and Chill



Mayibuye Mandela on Mac G’s Podcast and Chill

Mayibuye Mandela caused a stir with his interview on Mac G’s Podcast and Chill.

He was the recent episode released this week, and he topped Twitter trends as the interview garnered lots of reactions.

People dragged him for his poor articulation, while many were disgusted by some of his statements.

However, Mayibuye released a lengthy apology on social media after the interview.

Read the full apology letter below:

I am writing this letter to sincerely apologise for the inappropriate language I used during a recent episode of the MacG podcast. Upon reflection, I realise that my choice of words, specifically referring to Minister Zizi Kodwa as a boy, was disrespectful and unacceptable.

My intention going to MacG podcast and Chill was to raise funds for the Mandela house with the hopes to keep the Mandela home within the family and uphold the legacy for Tata’s children, great grandchildren and grandchildren. I was not sent by any family members and did this on my own free will.

It was never my intention to demean or belittle Minister Zizi Kodwa or anyone else. I understand the importance of respectful dialogue, especially when discussing public figures and leaders. Calling a man a “boy” is not only disrespectful but perpetuates harmful stereotypes and undermines the dignity of individuals.

I take full responsibility for my words and the impact they may have had on Minister Zizi Kodwa and the chillers. I deeply regret any offence or hurt that my remarks may have caused. I understand the weight of my influence as a podcast host and the responsibility that comes an. I would also sincerely like to apologise to Gayton Mackenzie, for he has been a great friend and always offered a hand and support in my work. I have much respect for him.

Lastly, I would like to make it known that I have much respect for the Mandela name and legacy. Therefore I apologise for misrepresenting the Mandela name. Moving forward, I commit to being more mindful of the language I use and the impact it may have on others. I will strive to foster a more inclusive and respectful environment in all aspects of my public discourse.

Once again, I offer my sincere apologies to South Africans and the Global community at large and anyone else who was offended by my remarks. I appreciate your understanding and forgiveness
