Zahara’s company‚ Zahara Army‚ stepped in at the last moment to sponsor an acting workshop in the Eastern Cape over the weekend‚ but was criticized after participants from Johannesburg had to scramble for food‚ transport and accommodation.
Speaking to the Sowetan‚ Rhythm City’s Sphamandla Dhludhlu said he and fellow actors Unathi Platyi (Keeping Score) and Vusi Thanda were promised food‚ accommodation and transport to the event in the Eastern Cape.
Instead, they were made to sleep at Zahara’s parent’s house and pay their own way back to Joburg.
Speaking yesterday, Zahara said she never made any such promises to the actors and had told them that they would be staying at her parent’s house. She said she had paid more than R45000 out of her own pocket for the event.
“They are spitting in my face. This was not a Zahara Army event‚ we just stepped in at the last moment to help them,” she said.
“They wanted to have the workshop so they should be responsible for it and not blame me.”
