South African media personality Ngizwe Mchunu is not happy with the reality TV show Mnakwethu. According to Mchunu, the show is tainting Zulu culture and giving people the wrong impression of polygamy.

Mchunu — who is also a polygamist — says that he won’t be quiet about his disdain until the show is removed from the air.

Ngizwe Mchunu thinks ‘Mnakwethu’ an insult to Zulu culture

Traditional healer Ngizwe Mchunu has expressed angry thoughts about the reality show Mnakwethu. The show often features men who propose taking in one or more wives into the marriage.

Over the last few weeks, the show has featured women who are unhappy about their husband’s decisions – something many South Africans are not pleased about.

This does not sit well with Mchunu who says that these men are “destroying” the Zulu culture and custom of polygamy. Mchunu says that the men who go on the show are “disrespectful” and only after fame.

According to Sunday World, a voice note of Mchunu discussing how much he loathes the show has been circulating on the internet. In the voice note he can be heard saying in Zulu:

“We cannot keep quiet while our tribe is being destroyed like this, I am hurt. We can’t keep quiet when our culture is being undermined. My heart pains when people like us have worked so hard to build and nurture Zulu culture.”

He then goes on to blast the show’s host Musa Mseleku who he says always “undermines the AmaZulu nation.”

He has also reportedly promised not to stop talking about the show until it is gone from Mzansi Magic where it airs on Tuesday evenings at 20:00 while adding that if the show doesn’t come to an end, he will report the matter to the Zulu king MisuZulu KaZwelithini.

Meanwhile here is what netizens think of the controversial show

“Shows like #face2face and #Mnakwethu shows the results of “bekezela” emshadweni. Women need to learn to choose themselves and put themselves first.”
