By Sowetan LIVE | Apr 25, 2014 | COMMENTS [ 196 ]

It's no secret that actress Bonnie Mbuli (Henna) was unhappy in her marriage with Xhosa hubby Sisanda Henna but her recent tweets revealed much more.

Bonnie said on Twitter, "If u wanna cook,clean and make tea like a crazy person ,marry into a Xhosa family#yipIsaidIt (sic)

"Your ass will work so hard ,you'll be begging ur dude to take you home ,on some ..babe,I've got that audition comin up!#" (sic)

Bonnie further compared the Xhosa culture to the movie 12 Years a Slave indicating that she was worse off than those in the movie.

"I love ma Xhosa ppls but Twelve years a slave aint got nothin on ya'll !!!" (sic)

After much critism from her followers, Bonnie later tweets that "It's really simple, u can't own ppls opinions or experiences, you'll just have to deal and move on, nizoba strong! (sic)

After a turbulent marriage, the talented actress Bonnie Henna divorced hubby Sisanda after almost a decade of 'for better or for worse'.

The single mother's last major production was Invictus.

So true. She is unhappy with her former hubby for whatever reason, and now wants to paint all Xhosa people as bad, even though she is Xhosa herself. What an idiot!

@Muratisso, ke agetse lentswe lagago lesaka. I know what you are saying about people saying Batswana are "uncultured / culture less. In my family we don't slaughter an animal for a funeral, we buy meat from a slagpaal. Children don't wear mourning clothes (be it a badge/pin/neckpiece), only adults do that but again it depend on the relationship they had with the deceased (eg. daughter in- law will do that for father in-law). We don't smear ash on windows. Our deceased our brought home the day before the funeral irrespective of how they died (in some culture people that were shot/stabbed to death don't do that). We have our own mores/values/norms. Be that as it may, it does not give me a right to judge/belittle other people's cultural practices.

Everything is wrong about Xhosa,wether you marry to him or her. Xhosa guys are arrogant as if they are always constipated. Everything goes with "chi" or "chini". Even when you ask him what is your name,the first thing from his mouth would be "chi". Coming to Xhosa woman. Ooooooooo No no no no. They are bully and rully. If you are not carefull enough or cool as a sotho guy she would marry you and its nonegotiable. A Xhosa lady like to set rules that her man should follow,but difficult for herslef. They breed like insects and milk men money in the name of support. Xhosa woman are only brave to move half naked along the streets with a questionable confidence. They like to yell and talk,no matter a topic. A Xhosa woman can talk and talk,even at beach when she is swimming, the moment her mouth gets out of the water she shouts and laugh alone. Those women dont care and I mean DONT CARE. They even dont care about themselves. A Xhosa man can drink the whole night,but A Xhosa woman can drink the whole week. I think there is something very wrong with Xhosa

I think you are having a problem about Xhosas my dear. There is nothing wrong with us, every tribe has their own lunatics. Don't insult all of us. Please stick to your tribe so you don't complain again.

Pitso you suck big time, how can you generalize, just because your xgf gave you hard time doesnt mean my sister is bad. You need to remember that just because theres many prostitutes in joburg doesnt mean every woman that lives there is a prostitute.
