Twitter users troll Mohale Motaung over picture of R2600 kettle


Media personality Mohale Motaung was dragged on social media for merely posting his tea and a kettle.

In his tweet, Mohale praised rooibos tea with a picture of a cup, a box of teabags, a spoon, and a SMEG kettle in full view.

"Rooibos tea makes everything better-Good Morning," he tweeted.

His followers were seemingly unimpressed that he was talking about tea, yet the kettle worth R2 600 was the main focus.

Mohale never saw it coming that people will fall on him like a wall of bricks for posting something as innocent as tea with some accusing him of boasting with "Somizi’s kettle" (sic), replied one Twitter user.

Another tweeted: "If this tweet is about the rooibos why is it behind everything? Uzok'shaya uSomizi (Somizi will hit you) when you flex with his Smeg kettle. (sic)"


"If this was an ad I’d say it’s a Carrol Boyes or a Smeg ad. The tea packet is lurking from the back. By the by rooibos slaps (sic)"

"e monate chelete ya @somizi neh?(sic)"

"Besides boiling water...wat does this Smeg kettle do?? (sic0"

"Why are people catching feelings ngale kettle? Why can't people just buy Smeg and heal (sic)"

"You don't have to.. there is more to life than expensive kitchenware. Komiki ke komiki (sic)"

After all that hate, Mohale responded that he’s not going to post his kettle again because it got people hot under the collar.

"Never posting my SMEG kettle, because wow- heart palpitations everywhere! (sic)"
