The two celebrity friendships I adore.

They have stuck together through thick and thin. They have never allowed anything to come between them. Even when times were tough and people turned against them, they still portrayed a united front picture in the public eye.

They are not perfect. Their many flaws have been highly documented in the media. They have made headlines for all the wrong reasons.

To some certain extend it will take a great motivational piece of writing to convince people that these public figures are also good people. This is because the media has portrayed them as bad boys and girls and that idea has resonated well in the minds of many people.

I’m not praising their stupid mistakes nor encouraging them to continue with their diva antics and authoritarian actions, but I’m saying people could learn a thing or two from their friendships, especially loyalty.

Julius Malema and Floyd Shivambu


Two former ANCYL power brokers; Malema was the President whilst Shivambu was his spin doctor. They always spoke the same language. When they attacked, they applied the same force, attacking their rival simultaneously. They left no gap for their enemy to occupy.

They were always on the same page. It just did not come as a surprise to me that both Malema and Shivambu resurrected in the political fraternity wearing red berets, sitting next to each other. It was also inevitable that Malema will lead the party in parliament while Shivambu is compensated with the equally high ranking position.

Malema told the media that some of his former close friends in the ANC lambasted him for forming the EFF and most importantly without consulting them first. He responded by saying he wanted to keep the idea discreet so that the enemy could find no leverage to sabotage his new project.

Whilst still in the ANC, Malema was very close to his predecessor, Fikile Mbalula. The two used to take on President Jacob Zuma and his allies at the ANC meetings. Malema even campaigned for Mbalula to be appointed in the party’s most influential position of the Secretary General.

Nonetheless, Malema apparently said nothing to Mbalula about the EFF but could trust his partner in crime, Floyd Shivambu with the idea. In parliament, Malema and Shivambu share the same desk.

Kelly Khumalo and sister Zandi

The Khumalo squared. They’ve been to hell together. They slept in the police holding cells for assault. You strike one woman, you anger all, ask Mandisa Meyiwa she knows very well.

Kelly Khumalo Arrested for Assault

Despite the fact that the two are sisters, Kelly and Zandi, to some certain extend, can be argued to be a very good friends. When everyone was judging Kelly and the media was quick to write her off, Zandi was there for her sister every step of the way.

She supported Kelly in many different ways. While Kelly was feeding her addiction with drugs and probably forgot that she had a small baby to look after, Zandi was there taking care of Christian.

Zandi supported Kelly during the Jub-Jub saga and most recent with the Senzo Meyiwa debacle. When Mandisa and Kelly exchanged words on Empire Road near the M1 last year August, Zandi could not sit back and relax. Instead she stepped in and helped the sister varam klap Mandisa.

Mandisa later reported the sisters to the Hillbrow police station and the two faced charges of assault. The Khumalo sisters are today having the last laugh as the case has been cancelled. Kelly was never shaken by the charges brought against her. Whilst in the holding cells she tweeted with tongues and later said “God will do what he said he will stand by his word, no weapon formed against me shall prosper. It won’t work!”
