Tumi Morake reveals secrets from being held at gunpoint.


As police brutality continues to hog international headlines in the week, comedian Tumi Morake has reflected on having rifles pointed at her when she was seven months pregnant.

There are widespread protests in America against racism and police brutality towards black people. This has led to several South Africans sharing their tragic stories of suffering at the hands of enforcement officials.

Tumi added her voice to the talk round the violence and reflected on having rifles pointed at her when she was in Cape Town together with her hubby Mpho Osei Tutu.

Tumi opened about her ordeal after songstress Simphiwe Dana shared her views on Twitter about the psychological effects on an individual who’s experienced police brutality.

The comedian also revealed how even after having rifles pointed at her, she and her hubby never got an apology. However, she felt grateful that her experience with the police didn’t end in them being hurt.

“Yup. I’ve had rifles pointed at me, seven months pregnant wondering how threatening I looked. Hubby in his shorts and golf shirt in Cape Town. I see these reports and wonder if I should be grateful we weren’t hurt or annoyed we didn’t escalate the matter. No apology.”


Tumi also opened about how the killing of George Floyd in America had triggered flashbacks to her own racist experience.

In 2017, the then radio host was labeled a racist and allegedly received death threat after she weighed in on a radio show discussion about Steve Hofmeyr by comparing apartheid to a bully taking a child’s bicycle, then the kid is made to share the bicycle.

Taking to Twitter, Tumi wrote expressed the trauma that she has got to relive when racial injustice makes headlines.

“The truth is I’m triggered. I do know what it wishes to speak up and undergo a relentless lynching by the proper and its minions. Race things erupt and that I have heart palpitations, type, and delete because it had been traumatic. But my voice stubbornly clings to my throat

“At first I feel it’s trying to remain down then I realize it’s trying to claw its answer. The figurative ’I can’t breath’, coincidentally also the title of a poem I wrote after the bicycle saga.”
