Media personality Bonang Matheba has been lauded as a “good friend” after visuals of her attending Mary Twala’s funeral on Thursday were aired on television during the livestream of the funeral proceedings

This after she was criticised for not publicly posting her condolences on the passing of the veteran actress when her death was announced at the weekend.

The pair had a very public fallout a few years ago during Bonang’s romantic relationship with rapper Kiernan ‘AKA’ Forbes.

Due to the timing, many assumed that the source of the spat was a rumour that Somizi was the one who told DJ Zinhle that the pair were dating behind her back while she was pregnant with her and AKA’s first child, Kairo.

However, Bonang briefly addressed the spat in her 2017 memoir, From A to B, explaining that her alleged assault at the hands of a boyfriend in 2012 taught her who she could trust.

“In the end, it was one of the reasons I stopped being friends with one of my closest friends, Somizi Mhlongo, although not immediately,” she wrote.
