Ntando Duma has taken over social media trending topics after she broadcast an incident on her Instagram Live.
Known on social media for sharing wholesome content featuring her cute daughter, today her sharing nature has come back to bite her.
In an over-two-minute-long screen recording, she can be seen arguing with someone about her parking spot.
The actress and media personality either went live especially to document the incident or was already live and chose to continue. At the beginning of the video Ntando Duma asks, “So, what’s your problem? What’s your point?”
Elsewhere in the video, she can be heard asking the woman warning her, “How do you know I don’t use a wheelchair?”
A futile performance as her audience knows that she doesn’t use a wheelchair.

In the background, the woman can be heard asking Ntando Duma how she would feel if someone close to her needed the parking spot dedicated for the disabled but was unable to use it because someone who didn’t need it was occupying it?
While the video was trained on her the whole time, Ntando Duma made sure to let her followers and viewers know that it was just a white woman trying to police her.
Perhaps, hoping for resounding support and a chorus of “abelungu bayadina” from her audience.
“You must tell that to your mother. F you and your mother”, she tells the woman.
Disabled parking bays are closer to entrances and are bigger for a reason. They offer space and access for people who have mobility issues, such as people who use wheelchairs including older persons.
Disability Info South Africa cites the Road Traffic Act 29 of 1989, “Municipalities provide for special parking spaces for people with prescribed disabilities or persons who transport them. If you have a disabled parking disc, you need to display the disc clearly in your windscreen.”
Another video recently went viral after its creator showed himself faking an injury to avoid a long queue at the airport and get wheeled around, taking away valuable resources from disabled passengers.
How rude must you be for an entire SA Black Twitter to come to the defense of umlungu.
Im not even gonna discuss the context because that’s a factor of humanity and Im proud of us for that.
Continue disciplining Ntando Duma guys pic.twitter.com/6WLK7ZQgcc

Ntando Duma filmed herself being a villain and somehow thought she was being a hero so proud of her work she posted it online. Now we have to side with old white women. We are too sober for this please.

If this isn’t clear enough from that trashy Ntando video, let’s spell it out: if you are an able bodied person, STOP parking in parking spots reserved for people with disabilities. Your ‘need’ for ‘convenience’ is selfishness

Finding a wheelchair parking occupied by an able-bodied person always inconveniences me as a wheelchair user . What Ntando Duma did is disrespectful and very rude

Defending Ntando Duma is literally having no respect or disregard for disabled people, it’s literally taking away the rights of disabled people!!!!
