Orlando Pirates player Thembinksoi Lorch was dragged on Twitter after his girlfriend Natasha Thahane said she received an R1 million scholarship to study abroad on an episode of Podcast And Chill on November 25.

“I asked Mam’ Baleka (Mbete) and was like, ‘Mama, I need to go back to school. I’ve been accepted. I don’t know what I’m going to do, can I have funds? Please arrange something for me.’ She managed to speak to (the department) Arts and Culture and they were able to help me,” Natasha said while on the show.

This sparked outrage on Twitter as users were curious as to how Natasha received such a large sum of money while other students were struggling to make ends meet.

Natasha issued a statement after former Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane asked her to explain herself to the public. According to the statement, she did not have a personal relationship with Mbete and received only R350 000.

“She (Mbete) advised me to explore the Department of Sports and Arts and Culture because they have got funding opportunities. That was my first conversation and last conversation with her.

“She did not make any calls on my behalf and did not send any emails on my behalf and I apologise for diluting the entire scenario because I made it seem like I had a personal relationship with her,” she said.

Lorch, who is supposed to be one of the most talented footballer’s this country has ever seen, now is an influencer.”
