MaMkhize has shared pics of this weekend's festivities.

Subtle, she is not.

She has shared pics of cows being transported, mamas dressed in their church clothes, juicy pieces of meat on the braai, and herself with the former health minister.

Shauwn Mkhize, the reality TV star and football club owner, is calling it a reconciliation in a message sharing how glad she is to see father and son together.

"As a big sister I took it upon myself to come and play my role to unite the family ahead of this weekends festivities," MaMkhize wrote on Instagram.

"It broke my heart to see my dear father Dr Zweli Mkhize and my little brother Dedani at odds with each other, but today we have defied the odds and proved that blood really is thicker then water.

"I’m glad that Dedani did the right thing by paying back all the money in question to the SIU and allowing the law to run its cause."

Despite reports that the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) yesterday declined to comment on claims that former health minister Zweli Mkhize's son, Dedani, has allegedly paid funds he received from Digital Vibes, Shauwn MaMkhize appears to be sticking to her guns.

"When all is said and done family comes first and politics last. We are bound by blood and we owe it to ourselves to be our own peacemakers no matter what.

It's a post that's puzzled many, but the SIU has remained mum on the issues, after telling News24 that the it won't comment as the matter is still sub judice.

"We cannot comment on the claims as the matter is before the court,"  SIU spokesperson Kaizer Kganyago told News24 on Thursday.
