The Mnakwethu reality TV star, Makhosazana “MaShelembe” Shelembe is back in the news and this time she claims things are not looking pretty for her. She claims she is knee-deep in poverty again following the lavish baby showers she received last year in KwaZulu-Natal.

Daily Sun reports that MaShelembe is struggling in her alcohol business, causing some financial strain in her life.

MaShelembe was one of the many wives who received the shock of their lives when their husbands decided to take a second wife without their approval as first wives.

She claimed that she would leave her husband and move out of their marital home but citizens helped her and also made her pregnancy extra special by hosting 2 baby showers.

“I’m actually starving and I have no other income except from this business. In 2021, I had two baby showers, which I really appreciate,” she said. “At the time, I was instructed to ignore all calls. Businesspeople who wanted to assist me were blocked but now I can see I was misled. I’m back in poverty and no one is willing to help me because I rejected their help.”

“Hundreds of people donated money to me but I never received a cent. I was referred to lawyers to assist me but I’ve never heard from them.”

MaShelembe pleads with the public to help her out once again.

There was a bit of drama regarding the baby showers as the two-party planners clashed.

Isolezwe reported at the time reported that Mathonsi was instructed by Mashelembe’s lawyers from Rajaram Mvulane Attorneys to pay Mashelembe R20 940.

RM Attorneys alleged that Mathonsi visited MaShelembe’s home, then asked for her bank account, and afterwards they both went to the bank to verify. It was alleged that Mathonsi asked the public to donate to her account for the baby shower.

Mathonsi told the publication, “This morning I requested the name of a school closest to her to enable the driver to find her easily. At this point, she informed me that on Friday she will be traveling to Empangeni. I then asked how this was possible because we had agreed on the weekend and everything it entailed.

“…all the women who wanted to shower Makhosi with love…the organizer made it clear that her plan was not flexible in any way, but promised to speak to her committee and get back to me in an hour with a resolution…” The publication quoted her.

“Makhosi is pregnant. I did not and do not want to be the cause or part of the cause of undue emotional or physical stress to her by putting her in an uncomfortable position. To avoid any conflict or perception of conflict, I decided to withdraw from the situation.”

“Ntsike Magwaza of Mrs Hairfidence had generously allowed us to use her business to drop off gifts for those who would not be available for the drive-through gift drop-off and baby shower on Sunday. This need not stop
