KwaZulu-Natal Premier Senzo Mchunu and health MEC Sbongiseni Dhlomo have declared war on ‘blessers’; a category of people who are often referred to as ‘sugar daddies’. These blessers have been accused of misleading innocent young girls who often end up getting pregnant for them.
Mchunu and health MEC Sbongiseni Dhlomo are to lead a campaign in Umtubatuba‚ north of Richards Bay on Friday against these blessers.
Spokesperson for the premier, Ndabezinhle Sibiya said the campaign was driven by the “alarming statistics” of the activities of blessers.
“In the area the premier discovered alarming statistics. Out of about 13‚106 birth or deliveries during 2015/16 financial year 1‚777 were teenagers under 18 years. Clearly the blessers are running amok in the area.”
The statistics he said shows that there were 46 incomplete abortions and 10 maternal deaths.
“The area must be liberated from the blessers who appear to be misleading young girls and making them pregnant,” he said.
The premier‚ health MEC and other executive members will all come out and participate in the march against illegal abortions and conclude by addressing community members on the need to fight and protect their young girls.
In a similar development, a Pretoria businesswoman declared war on an infamous blesser, warning him to stay off her young daughter or face her wrath.
The angry mum Naledi Ratsela is accusing the 54-year-old businessman of taking advantage of her 22-year-old daughter, Barileng.
In her attempt to thwart the relationship, Ratsela (42) has had to strip her daughter of all her privileges, including a Jeep Sahara she bought for her and in her desperation, kicked her daughter out of her house in Wonderpark, Pretoria North, to mount pressure on her into dumping her sugar daddy.
Meanwhile, TV personality Khanyi Mbau has been labelled a former ‘blessee’ for her relationship with Mandla Mthembu.
Khanyi only needed one sentence to set the records straight as she tweets :
“He can’t be a blesser if I was his wife‚” Khanyi said in one tweet
