Khathide “Tshatha” Ngobe, a controversial presenter on Ukhozi FM, has said that the Jehovah’s Witnesses prevented him from voting in the country’s elections owing to their views.
As a result, the Woza Nabangani Bakho (WNB) afternoon drive show host has never cast a ballot for his preferred candidates at the municipal, provincial, and national levels of government.
Ngobe initially criticized Serena Williams for her recent baptism as a Jehovah’s Witness, stating that she had made a mistake.
“Jehovah’s Witnesses forbid congregation members from engaging in politics. “Next year will be my first-time voting,” Tshatha stated in response to his colleague Nolwazi Machi’s social media post about Williams’ baptism.
Since 2004, when he was 22 years old, however, Ngobe has missed four straight national elections.
