Criselda Dudumashe opens up about backlash she received

Criselda Dudumashe faced the worst ordeal when people took to social media to talk about how bad a person she is. This was earlier this year when she commented about the former Deputy Minister of Higher Education Mduduzi Manana’s character.

The TV personality seemed to defend Mduduzi, days after it emerged he had assaulted a woman.


She later apologized for the incident.


Her biggest pain however, was seeing others turn on her.

“For me the most painful experience of the whole thing was watching people who were supposed to be close to me‚ those who were my colleagues‚ those who were my friends‚ taking to social media to talk about what a horrible person I am. That cracked me. It is one thing to go with the trend‚ go with the hype‚ but you are supposed to know me‚” she said.

Criselda was removed from her Metro FM show “until further notice”. She also rejected a nomination to be a board member of the SA National Aids Trust (SANAT) over the backlash.
