Organizers of KwaZulu-Natal Entertainment awards (KZNEA) have failed to fulfill their promise to winners of of the first ever event.
Each winner of the various categories were promised to walk away with R100 000 whilst the KZN’s Most Loved award was worth R500 000.
According to Sunday World, winners have allegedly not received any money yet.
Khuzani who was supposed to have won R600 000 has also not received his money.
A source told the paper that the organisers might have allegedly stole the money for themselves as this was a huge event, “People are still in the dark as to what happened to the money they were supposed to bag when they were announced as winners. A lot of money was pumped into that event, media people were flown from different provinces to cover the event and were booked in upmarket hotels. It might mean the organisers ‘chowed’ the money.”
Singer Zandi Khumalo’s husband, Mhlo Gumede is reported to be one of the major organizer. He allegedly received a copious amount of sponsorship but the funds have not seen the light of day.
