This is the last time I address this and talk about this. First of all, I’d like to thank everyone who contributed to the R10 goes a long way initiative.
If it wasn’t for your contributions, we wouldn’t have raised R2 million. Second of all, myself and my team members, we are not crowd funders. We have never done crowdfunding before. It’s our first time and due to it being our first time – we said we do not want to make any mistakes.
We said you know what? Let’s partner up with an organization called Fundi because they have access to Universities. They have access to see which students have registered.” He explained in part.

According to the statement, all the funds were transferred to Fundi’s account and some companies are still awaiting tax clearance.We transferred all the money to Fundi’s account. And even some companies were still waiting for tax clearance and those companies were told to transfer that money to Fundi’s account. Fundi will administer everything. It brings me to this point… Actually why those students who benefited from the initiative are so quiet? Why are you quiet? You guys are seeing there’s fire, people are fighting and you guys are quiet. Can all the students who benefited from this initiative stand up and say that ‘my registration got paid?’” He added.
He concluded his video by sharing how greatly disappointed he was with the way South Africans have turned his kind gesture against him.
“It gets me to this point where I’m about to say that South Africans don’t have a ‘Thank You.’ We don’t appreciate. Yes, to a certain point I understand why we don’t have a thank you because we live in a country filled with corruption but we are all not like that.”
Even his sister Khanyi Mbau spared a few minutes from her romantic filled life to come and defend her brother.
In defence of Lasizwe Khanyi had this to say “This breaks my heart, not only because you are my brother but how we a good gesture could turn so bad and we forget the intention behind Lasizwe starting this.” She went on to ask Funda to give the country an explanation on what happened to the money.
