It’s common in celebville to have a parody account, especially with social media.  But Buhle Mkhize doesn't do common. Minister Gigaba’s alleged ex-mistress is asked her Instagram followers to help her report a fake account: Buhle_ Mkhize.

“May you guys PLEASE help me report this @buhle__mkhize account? I've asked this person on numerous occasions to please delete it but she/he just deletes my comments. PLEASE help me get this shut down I beg of you. You can go on it and click on the three dots at the top right corner and options including report will come up. People of @instagram PLEASE HELP !!!”, she wrote.

Apparently, the life of Buhle Mkhize’s is so fine, someone wants to be her. The fake account has just over 5000 followers. 

The impersonator takes pictures from the socialite's account, deletes the captions and posts them as their own.

EXCLUSIVE: My whirlwind night with AKA Part 1

"What satisfaction do you get from stealing my pictures ???. Understand THIS : I've reported you and will not back down until you delete this fake account. And stop the fake tags you've been doing since I called you out. They are purposely done to a wrong account because you don't want people to know what you are doing. You are SICK !," Mkhize ranted.

But fans only added fuel to the fire when some of them started following the alleged fake account. Buhle was "shooketh" by their 'disloyalty' that she even threatened to block all her followers who started following the 'fake' profile.

  • Buhle shared another screengrab of the fake profile with the caption: "I'm so shocked by the internet. Yesterday I made a plea to get the @buhle__mkhize account that's impersonating me shut down but nearly a hundred people from this page went to follow that account😭. I'm SHOOKETH. What I've gathered is that anyone who did this/continues to follow this person isn't supportive of me at all.... As of today I'll be blocking everyone who's following that @buhle__mkhize account so I can free my page of fake people."

I'm so shocked by the internet. Yesterday I made a plea to get the @buhle__mkhize account that's impersonating me shut down but nearly a hundred people from this page went to follow that account😭. You can see this by looking at the number of followers that page had at the time I took this screenshot yesterday and the number they have now. I'm SHOOKETH😑. However, I do believe that sometimes bad things happen so we can be enlightened. What I've gathered is that anyone who did this/continues to follow this person isn't supportive of me at all. If you don't understand what's the big deal about someone stealing/not crediting you and building an audience based off of your work research social media/digital influencer. As of today I'll be blocking everyone who's following that @buhle__mkhize account so I can free my page of fake people. THANK YOU to all of you who have reported it ,kindly continue to do so. I'd also like to add that @booslaybeautiful is the official support/fan account and you are very welcome to follow it. They asked for permission to run the account, give me credit for everything they post and have never made any attempts to make profits. In any case I hope this @buhle__mkhize nuisance will be shut down soon.see you then.
