Someone stop her, she’s causing more damage! It seems like Natasha Thahane has chewed more than she can swallow and now saving herself isn’t even possible. The actress out of desperation and most probably pressure has gone on contradicting what she had initially said in her interview with MacG. And now people have labelled her as a privileged liar.

On Tuesday, the actress posted a video explaining what had transpired between her, Baleka Mbete and the department of Arts and Culture. She admits that she may have exaggerated the extent of her relationship with Mbete. Thahane has now changed her statement of calling Mbete claiming she approached the former parliament speaker while she was in a meeting about funding options because she had been accepted to the New York Film Academy.

“She then 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,” Natasha said.

She then goes on to say that she only received R350 000 from the government and the rest of the money was in a form of a loan from Desmond Tutu’s sister.

This video comes after both Baleka and Natasha were called out by South Africans as the actress admitted that Baleka Mbete used her influence to get her funding towards her tuition fees, which altogether came to more than R1 million.

Her new explanation sparked outrage on social media with a lot of SAns saying that they were being taken for a ride.
