Springbok world cup rugby final hero Makazole Mapimpi is scoring great off the field by attracting secret admirers from the fairer sex, even those who previously looked down upon the once not-so-famous rugby prodigy who by then was still representing, the Southern Kings.
Mapimpi is the first player in the history of Springboks to score a try in a Rugby World Cup final.
The new Springboks poster boy who finished the World Cup in Japan as South Africa’s highest try scorer and second highest in the tournament definitely never had it easy with women.
One of his text messages send to one woman whom he was wooing almost 4 years ago, only attracted a weird and bizarre response only after his Tokyo, Japan World Cup heroics on TV.
A woman identified as Vuyolwethu Linyana Ntshukumbana shared a screenshot of a hilarious conversation with somebody named “Makazole Drex Mapimpi”.
“Hey bendigezelwa yi network kungona ndizibonayo ezi texts”(Hi I had network problems I only just saw the texts now) was her response four years later.
She alleges that the Springbok player had tried to contact her four years ago and she ignored him because he was not as famous at the time but now regrets her decision.
Social media users had a field day enjoying a fat laugh at her eventual response only in late October 2019, when she did decide to respond.
Her ridiculous story prompted different responses (see reactions below).
