“I don’t want to be remembered. I want you guys to just look after each other.”
These are the famous words uttered by media personality, Kuli Roberts herself. This was before last year’s local government elections, was seen wearing an African Transformation Movement T-shirt and allegedly registered as the party’s Ward 65 Councillor.

In a turn of events, she made an about-turn and withdrew her candidacy as she said, “They saw me wearing the ATM T-shirt and assumed I was running for councillor. The Constitution says I may join any party, but I was never interested in politics. I never had political ambition. Go to the IEC, my signature is not there. I was never running for councillor.”
I think she had a premonition of her death. Because what would happen now that she passed on last Thursday as she’s said to have collapsed? Don’t miss her memorial service today there’ll be no other Nomakula Roberts other than her.
Social media reactions:
Wearing the most Kuli Roberts thing to a Kuli Roberts memorial service.
