The streets are both savage and cold. Beautiful Uzalo actress Nonka, real name Thuthuka Mthembu recently learned this lesson the hard way as she came under fire for her misspelled English or rather broken English.
The alleged Uzalo actress Thuthuka Mthembu‘s Twitter account has been under fire after it posted a snap along with a broken English caption!
There was a hashtag that was seriously trending on Twitter, the #IamSingleBecause challenge. A lot of people participated in the challenge and it was really entertaining.
The actress who is now also on TV drama eHostela trended after she accidentally used an incorrect word on a tweet. She was absolutely slammed and became a joke after she said ‘find’ instead of ‘found’.
She tweeted, “#IamSingleBecause I haven’t find a good man.”
All hell broke loose after she wrote why she is single. But it was not because of the reason. It was because of the use of the word “FIND” instead of Found. Tweeps descended on her like a tonne of bricks as she came under fire.
With no waste of time, some tweeps quickly reacted to her English and here are some of the reactions:
However, do not let the broken word fool you. The actress scored her degree last month and is on a high.

The 22-year-old actress said it was difficult to get through her studies in a Covid-19-ravaged year, but the pandemic and its effects on the industry made her aware that education is valuable.
“Returning to school in the year of the pandemic was really a challenge and called for a huge adjustment in terms of how we should do schoolwork,” said Mthembu.
“It definitely forces you to develop time management skills, as well as planning ahead. You have to be extremely aware of time, handling your time well means no aspect of your life has to steal time from the other.”
Mthembu had abandoned her studies, which she started in 2017, to pursue her passion for acting, but soon realised she needed to finish what she had started, as acting was not as glamorous as she first thought. She said even with the advice from family and friends to set her foot back into the lecture room, she was hesitant to make a return, believing that her career was solid. However, living in the time of Covid-19 made her appreciate education.
