Ziyanda wouldn’t say what the charge was.

\n

However, she said the issue could have been dealt with in a more private manner. She said her grandparents were the people with the money and power.

\n

Ziyanda blamed mostly her grandmother. She said they had never had a good relationship.

Ziyanda denied on social media that she had been in a rehabilitation centre for alcohol abuse. – News24
