Lasizwe's proof of electricity tweet leaves tweeps divided
YouTuber Lasizwe Dambuza's good deed hit a bump in the road after he posted proof of it which divided tweeps.
On Tuesday, the "Lasizwe: Fake It Till You Make It" reached out to his fans in these uncertain times and asked those in need to send their electricity meter numbers.
Following this, Lasizwe posted a screenshot of the R100 electricity voucher he sent including the caption: "To everyone I bought electricity for, Please use it wisely."

Many tweeps were confused by the "please use it wisely" statement at the end and made fun of it.
Is there a way mhlambi of using electricity unwisely though to someone who needs it? I can’t fathom the "use it wisely" part .. such cringeworthy stuff 💔

I think helping is enough. No one needs a ted talk on how to use electricity.

If Lasizwe finds out that you switched on the geyser, le nyele 😭— Ria (@_RiaMolefe) April 15, 2020
Others didn't understand what the uproar was about and praised him for helping those in need.
You did good bra but unfortunately most people are unappreciative on Twitter, even if it was million they would still ask why not 2million.🙏 https://t.co/n8qY9KQesV— uNADA (@yanganada) April 15, 2020

Whatever amount of electricity you have received be grateful because Lasizwe doesn't owe anyone anything but y'all have the energy to complain where you shouldn't. Sek mann— Alexander Jobe ™ (@AlexSithole) April 15, 2020
