Johannesburg - Barely a week after broadcasting veteran Vuyo Mbuli was buried at a provincial funeral, his personal life has come under scrutiny.
The City Press reported today that Mbuli's wife Savita said he had several affairs during their marriage and that she allegedly quarrelled with one of Mbuli's mistresses in the lead up to his funeral on Friday.
Media personality Kuli Roberts was also implicated in the report, but denied having anything more than a platonic friendship with him.
Taking to twitter to further respond to the article, Roberts said: "What does one do besides laugh? I've just been called by City Press cause Savitha told em, I was having an affair with Vuyo! Amen! I told em, I've no time for Savitha's dramas. Wow! Strange individual."
@veruciamhoni She should b asked where SHE was while I was sending him raunchy messages? WAS SHE ON HER BACK OR KNEES?— Kuli Roberts(@kuliroberts) May 25, 2013
While Roberts's rant continued through to several more posts (view in our picture gallery), a twitter account believed to belong to Mbuli's 13-year-old son Sithenkosi tweeted Roberts to ask her to stop fuelling the allegations.
@kuliroberts I don't know why you have to be so dumb about all of this. I am mourning the loss of my father and you stupid tweets don't help— Sithe Mbuli (@SitheMbuli) May 25, 2013
Sithenkosi said invited Roberts via the social media network to take up any comment she had directly with him.
@kuliroberts so if you don't mind you can take your cheap lipstick and your ugly face and shove it— Sithe Mbuli (@SitheMbuli) May 25, 2013
While Roberts did not respond directly to the tweets, she did challenge Savita's account of alleged raunchy messages that she and Mbuli exchanged.
None of the twitter accounts have tweeted anything else since yesterday's public exchange.
