#FakeNews Alert: There is NO planned national petrol station shutdown

Published

on

A WhatsApp voice note claiming there will be a national shutdown of all petrol stations in SA on Friday, July 27, has been rubbished as ‘fake news’ by members of the petrol industry.

In the voice note, which has been widely circulated on the social messaging network since this morning, a woman can be heard purporting that no petrol stations across the country will be operational on Friday . She also urges all motorists to fill up their tanks on Thursday “as there will be no petrol at stations on Friday through to Saturday and Sunday”.

Gavin Smith of Engen South Africa said he had already fielded several calls relating to the “inaccurate” voice note. He refuted the claims, saying they were “simply not true”.
BP South Africa’s Nelisiwe Masina said there were no truth to the allegations.
Several managers at petrol stations across Cape Town echoed that it would be business as usual come Friday.
Meanwhile,  Mayco member for safety, security and social services, JP Smith, said he received queries from members of the public about similar viral messages on a daily basis – many of which had no validity.
“I’ve actually started to become cynical about the validity of such messages… they’re often inaccurate, and seem to be nothing more than a calculated destabilisation campaign to drive up anxiety and fear,” Smith said. “I don’t want to add weight to a message such as this which has an anonymous origin, but the majority of the times these voice notes do nothing more than promote fear mongering.”

CHEATING SCANDAL!!! Akhona responds to Scoop Makhathini’s Twitter rant!

Published

on

This is the thing about being betrayed by the one that you love dearly, you almost want to tell the whole world about that person’s not so good deeds. Such was the case with one of Mzansi’s most revered hip hop commentator and all round entertainer, Siyabonga Scoop Ngwekazi, who allegedly took to his Twitter page last night and vented about his girlfriend, Akhona Carpede – accusing her of cheating.

Twitter was lit after Scoop dragged Akhona as he posted a series of tweets expressing just how hurt he was by her actions. In one of the posted, he even included a photo of Akhona and the alleged guy that was regarded as a”Best friend” by her.

However, a few moments later Scoop then stated that his Twitter account was actually hacked, therefore his rant about his girlfriend is false. This move from Scoop left many Tweeps wondering if his account was truly hacked or there’s actually more to the story than meets the eye?

Well, earlier yesterday Akhona posted what seemed like a subtle jab surrounding her and Scoop currently. The general tone of her tweet have left many convinced that there was no hacking of accounts on Scoop’s end, as he had maintained after the frenzy last night.

Taking to Twitter, the following was posted by Akhona.

 

It’s interesting how she mentioned the word “loath” in this tweet as that’s exactly what was tweeted by Scoop’s alleged hacker.
