MAMPARA OF THE WEEK Andile Hlatshwayo

- Royally trounced

This prophet of doom is a serial proponent of fake news. He has led many senseless struggles, including marches against 5G towers and anti-vaccine protests. Like most narcissist­s he goes by many titles, including bishop and doctor. He throws his weight around at important events, claiming to have proximity to power. So on Friday he proclaimed himself a member of the Zulu royal family and tried to block the media from covering the chaotic developmen­ts at KwaKhangel­amankengan­e palace. But he met his match in the form of eNCA journalist Siphamandl­a Goge, who told him where to get off: “Even the king himself never chased us away from the palace; no commoner will chase us out.” That sent Hlatshwayo from the kingdom straight to Mamparadom — where he belongs.
