South African actress and television personality Ntando Duma has had quite a roller-coaster year so far. After making her first appearance on Mzansi Magic telenovela, “The Queen” in 2020, she quit the show this July after she was cast for an upcoming Netflix original series. Her stint on the telenovela was marred by constant social media criticism of her acting skills. The actress and Ferguson Films remained mum on the criticism throughout.
Also in July, the actress attracted widespread condemnation after she recorded herself seated in her car as she unleashed a profanity-laden attack towards an elderly woman who had questioned her choice to use a parking bay reserved for the disabled.
On Monday, as pictures started to emerge of Duma rallying for the EFF in Mdantsane township and at the Cape Town University of Technology, tweeps took the time out to question her affiliation with the political party.
This comes after singer Makhadzi suffered the same fate over the weekend for her affiliation with the ANC.
Other tweeps, though, came out in support of the artists’ decision to associate with the party of their choosing.
You cannot compare Makhadzi with Ntando Duma,” posted @MrPanache. “Asseblief. Ntando is an EFF member who is involved in EFF activities on the ground. Not just EFF events to secure the bag, like ANC mascots.”

Difference between Ntando Duma and ANC aligned celebrities is that Ntando Duma shows up when it matters most not only during businesses aka tenders like those with 6 businesses benefiting from the government of the day but nowhere when communities needs them. pic.twitter.com/ZPDm4wIwVy
