Lasizwe hits back at the R2 Million backlash

Lasizwe is hurt as many calls him out everyday to give account for the R2 Million raised for students.

Earlier this year, Lasizwe and his team started a fundraising initiative called #R10GoesALongWay and raised R2 Million


WE DID IT JOE! We raised R1 000 000.00 for students to get registered in Universities in 5 days!!! We literally did it! Thank you to every single one of you who contributed R10 to this initiative. WE REALLY DID THAT!!” tweeted Lasizwe thanking everyone for their contributions, he tweeted then.

The star however, took to his Twitter to respond to the backlash he has been getting adding that this is his first and last time doing a fundraising.

Even though Lasizwe seemed to take the matter lightly at the time, today he released an official statement addressing the issue.

In the statement, he made it clear that this is the last time he addresses this matter.

He also expressed his disappointment at the students who benefited from the fundraising asking why they were quiet during the storm.

Lasizwe said they did not want to make mistakes so they decided to partner up with Fundi.

The Organisation confirmed that: “A total of R2 192 462,58 was pledged. Of the pledged amount, R 1 072 462,58 was actually received from the pledged funds…17 000 applications were received, 166 students were drawn to get their fees funded in the first draw session”
