Coconut Kelz – real name Lesego Tlhabi had her social media followers in stitches with her hard-hitting satire regarding the Springboks final, England’s Tom Curry’s racial slur allegations, and the South African President Cyril Ramaphosa as seen in her X (social media formally known as Twitter) post on Thursday, 26 October.


If there is one thing about Coconut Kelz, she pulls off all the stops when taking a deep look into the most trending topics in the country. The hilarious 35-year-old recently decided to take a few noticeable jabs at England’s Tom Curry following his racial slur accusations of the Springbok hooker Bongi Mbonambi.

She has since linked Curry to the likes of Dr Nandipha Magudumana who is often accused by netizens of playing the victim. This comes after the English flanker accused Mbonambi of having called him a “white c***” during the semi-finals last weekend. The Springbok player has since been cleared by World Rugby after an inquiry into the matter was opened.

“Just a young catch-up before the final. Uit de blou van onse collective hemel, there goes the British causing k*k. How’s that one oke [Tom Curry] just lying and crying on us? They should call him Nandipha [Dr Nandipha Magudumana],” Coconut Kelz said.

“This is exciting times… We are all on the same side for the first time since that week we thought Cyril [the South African President] was one of the good guys. This is the moment when they say rainbow nation dream,” she added.

Load shedding is on pause ahead of the Rugby World Cup final, meaning South Africans will be able to watch the Springboks go against New Zealand uninterrupted on Saturday, 28 October, Jacaranda FM reported.

“Load shedding will remain suspended until 16:00 on Sunday. Eskom will continue to monitor the power system and publish the week ahead outlook on Sunday,” Eskom’s Operations and Maintenance Manager, Daphne Mokoena was quoted as saying.

“Anyway, load shedding and racism are only suspended for a few more days, and then just like with Eskom, it’s back to cursing the darkness Monday morning,” Coconut Kelz speculated.

She then had a ‘lovely’ message for the Springboks and pleaded with them to perform at their best in their first half final. Last week’s game against England had Springboks fans sharing a few tears and experiencing high-levels of anxiety before they turned the game around in the last few moments.

“Let’s score more tackles and shoot more kicks way earlier in the game… Usually I’m on the white kant, but just for one more weekend, I support the All Black, and by that I mean Siya Kolisi and Bongi Mbonambi,” she joked.

“Not loadshedding and racism being suspended for a few days😭😭😭,” @yrbylndo wrote.

“Hmmm! It’s the depth for me. The satire is solid. A much more rounded social commentator,” @matposha said.

“Genius! I’m not sure if it’s morally acceptable for me to enjoy this as much as I did. Feels like self-hate,” @ tinusleroux commented.
