He lost everything in fire
During the recent tragic fire at Johannesburg’s Kwa Mai Mai informal settlement, he lost all of his belongings and his meat business. Khumbulani was pleading for donations to help him rebuild his life and business after the fire.
After the fire destroyed about 400 shacks, as well as his meat business, his source of income, he became one of over 800 homeless people while still trying to get acting jobs.
He told the publication that he would appreciate any assistance after the fire.
“Because I’m still looking for work as an actor, I decided to start a meat business at Kwa Mai Mai, where I’ve been selling meat and living since December.”
“Unfortunately, the horrible fire consumed all of my business and belongings, and I was literally left with only the one I was wearing.” “I’d appreciate it if anyone could help me with anything,” he said.
Khumbulani stated that he relocated from Folweni, KZN to greener pastures in Johannesburg. ” I began my acting career in 2016 and things were going well until the Covid-19 pandemic regulations ruined my life.”
“I told myself that instead of folding my hands while looking for an acting job, I should do something that will help me put bread on the table and not be afraid of my meat business in Kwa Mai Mai,” he said.
When he saw the fire devouring all of his belongings, the 34-year-old felt as if he were dying.
