Rami Chuene dragged for hyping MaMkhize's party during lockdown
Seasoned actress Rami Chuene ruffled feathers when she commented on her friend Shauwn Mkhize’s Instagram post about a birthday party the Durban tycoon alleged hosted this past weekend.
Taking to Twitter on Monday, Chuene apologised: “Thank you for holding me accountable today. I really appreciate it, acknowledge it & receive it with love.
This is not the time to drop the ball-even in jest - nothing is light, nothing is funny. We must hold each other accountable. I get it, I get you. We continue to #StayAtHome.”

Chuene rubbed peeps up the wrong way when in spite of the rising cases and death of the coronavirus, the former "Muvhango" actress, jokingly encouraging her friend to host a party in spite of the level three lockdown rules and regulations.
It all started when the reality star took to Instagram posing in a black off the shoulder, cocktail dress with feather detail and a matching scarf, simply captioning the post, “Out and about ...#kwamamkhize”

While local stars were praising Mkhize on how gorgeous she looked, Chuene also commented, said “You look too hot! 🔥🔥🔥🔥Kodwa uyaphi? Where are you going without me? Since when? I mean, really????"
It was later revealed that Mkhize hosted a birthday party, which she posted on her Instagram stories, and when people confronted her, she said, it was a “prayer gathering.”
Making reference to the IG story, the actress, who was clearly not invited, asked: “My friend, kanti you went to a party for real last night? He banna?”
Tweeps came guns blazing, criticising Chuene heavily, with some even labeling her a "hypocrite" for encouraging her friend to break the law.
Rami is a hypocrite for hyping up Mamkhize after all she said about following the rules of the lockdown. pic.twitter.com/nY4Hz1v3Q0— Azee (@TheRealAzee_RSA) June 7, 2020
Celebs are living their lives shame I guess coronavirus only affects broke guys like I. I mean Rami , Mamkhize etc are living their lives. Somizi and Rami were quick to bark “Stay at home” during Stella Ndabeni Saga and its so irritating. Since celebs are on Level-1 how. pic.twitter.com/Cj6is11vMH— Prof Bantu Bhungane💎 (@bantu_bhungane) June 7, 2020
