Just last week Uyajola 99 presenter Jub Jub was justifying the behavior of South Africans who took to the streets of Johannesburg and KwaZulu-Natal to loot various shopping malls and outlets.

This weekend, Jub Jub appeared to have had a change of heart and was captured among other members of the community cleaning up a local mall.

Jub Jub has a change of heart

Last week, Jub Jub the presenter of popular South African reality show Uyajola 99, recorded himself sending a strong message to the government regarding the ongoing looting that plagued South Africans after Jacob Zuma protesters stormed the streets to demand he gets released from prison.

In the viral clip, the presenter basically condoned the actions of the looters who he said had no choice and were only trying to feed themselves after years of being subjected to impoverished lives under South Africa’s current government.

Over the weekend it appeared that he had a change of heart after he was spotted among other members of the community who gave up their time to clean up the mess that was left behind by the brazen looters.

Not everyone was impressed with the Ujajola 99 star

While Jub Jub raked in praises for his decision to go and clean the mall, not everyone was impressed. While some people noted how Jub Jub went from telling looters to loot to cleaning up looters’ mess, others criticised the TV presenter for taking cameras along with him to do the cleaning.

“Be the change you want? But you told them to loot…..you planned on cleaning while telling them that? How do people support destroying things and then want to help in building them back? Why support the destruction in the 1st place? Hai, something is not right Jub!!!”
