SA’s Maponyane shocked by ‘stripping’ incident


Two women who were banned from Gaborone’s up market club, Cigar Lounge, for ‘stripping’ have received negative comments even from South African socialite, Masego ‘Maps’ Maponyane, this week.

Maponyane, who was in the country for a Valentine’s Day event dubbed ‘Redds Singles Night Out’ as a club guest, expressed his ‘concern’ over the choice of fashion statement by the women.  He described the scenario as an attempt ‘to grab attention’ on Tuesday through Twitter.

“When I was in Botswana over the weekend there were things people did to stand out, but this I will struggle to forget,” Maponyane tweeted referring to the pictures that went on social media accompanied by a Jacob Zuma meme. He ended his Botswana experience with a “gore o pecheditseng matswele ahaaye? That I will never understand. I blame a Amber Rose though” [sic]. The model-cum-TV presenter is the son of famous Bafana Bafana legend, Marks Maponyane.  The well-attended event was going ‘according to plan’ with Maponyane taking pictures and mingling with the crowd until the two women turned up.
