Mihlali Ndamase is calling out black parents for not discussing real issues with their kids.
YouTuber Mihlali Ndamase has weighed in on a conversation about a few 12-year-old girls dying after she was allegedly brutally sjambokked by her parents.
Mihlali took to Twitter and claimed, “black parents would rather beat their children to death than normalize having conversations about sexuality and romantic relationships …”
The YouTuber’s comments come after SowetanLIVE reported that a 12-year-old girl was allegedly subjected to just about half-hour of brutal sjambokking by her mother and her live-in lover at their range in Lehane, south of Johannesburg last week.
According to the publication, just a couple of minutes after the assault, which was apparently punishment over rumors that she was “seen kissing a boy within the street”, the girl was found dead on the toilet floor where she had gone to scrub off the blood that had covered her body.
The couple made their introduction at Lenasia regional court on a charge of murder last week. Their matter has been postponed to next week for a bail hearing.
This is not the primary time Mihlali has touched on a subject regarding black parents’ behavior.

At the beginning of the month, the make-up specialist found herself hitting back at parents who were expecting celebs to be role models for their children.
While tons of children search for famous people and sometimes copy their lifestyles, the influencer told black parents to prevent putting unnecessary pressure on celebs and rather take full accountability for his or her children’s behavior.
Mihlali’s gatvol revelation comes after a young Twitter exchange with a tweep who criticized her for tweeting that she believed during a man quite she believed in herself.
With the tweep calling out Mihlali for being a “bad” model to the younger generation, the YouTube sensation hit back, saying, “Khayophangela”, simply telling the tweep to “Go to work” as she felt her initial tweet was nothing but her being sarcastic.
As her clap back sparked a conversation about why parents expect tons from celebs, Mihlali then fired another shot, claiming parents who do this don’t give their children enough to seem up to.
“Then you come on the web and police people’s behavior in order that they can do your job for you,” Mihlali said while reiterating that folks who get pressed over her tweets are nothing but “dumb”.
