Kunene blesses a Zimbabwean waiter with a R11k tip

Kenny Kunene


Patriotic Alliance’s Deputy President, Kenny Kunene, has caused an uproar on social media after leaving an extraordinary tip for a Zimbabwean waiter during a night of extravagant spending in Durban.

Kunene, a prominent businessman, was among the high-profile figures who descended on Durban for the city’s annual Durban July weekend.

Along with his friend Sergio Cabonge, Kunene is reported to have spent over R125,000 at the Rockets Club in Umhlanga Rocks.

Receipts shared on social media by celebrity gossip figure Musa Khawula revealed that in addition to the lavish bar tab, Kunene also left a staggering R11,000 tip for a waiter named Washington, who was identified as being from Zimbabwe.

This gesture has sparked strong reactions, with some social media users accusing Kunene of hypocrisy. @Miz_Ruraltarain, a Twitter user, pointed out the contradiction between Kunene’s actions and the Patriotic Alliance’s supposed mission to prioritise the employment of South Africans in entry-level jobs.

“And the waiter is Washington from Zimbabwe 🇿🇼, walks away with R11k from Deputy President of Patriotic Alliance that supposedly must fight for employment of South Africans in “Entry-level jobs” which are non scarce skills! What is Sergio contributing to our country’s economic value? What permit does his friend have, on surely his long lifetime friend Kenny Kunene can indulge patriots?,” @Miz_Ruraltarain expressed.

Other commenters echoed similar sentiments, with some accusing Kunene of being more concerned with “flash and show off” than genuine patriotism. Some questioned the work permits and economic contributions of Kunene’s friend, Sergio Cabonge.
