It's been a very weird 24 hours for Kast. According to Mmegi yesterday Kast held a press briefing during which he lamented the Minister of Youth, Sports and Culture Hon Minister Olopeng's alleged treatment of him and Tlatsa Lebala. He called Olopeng a "powerful bully" and went on to state that he thinks the Minister is blocking him from getting the national stadium  as a venue for this year's show.

IN 17 DAYS RE A TLATSA.. 01/12/2018

He further added that Minister Olopeng denies him any access to him to discuss Tlatsa Lebala related things and relayed a rather embarrassing incident between the two.

"It got really bad when I came as early as 6am hoping to meet him before he started his day, but was really embarrassed as he just brushed me aside and took the Tlatsa Lebala hat I had brought him and gave it to his assistant and walked away" said Kast.

Well the Minister has not taken these allegations lying down. This morning Olopeng posted a scathing response to Kast's allegations. In it, he stated that he's provided Kast all the necessary support he's needed in the past, and denied having knowledge of any meeting request from Kast.  He went on to call Kast a cry baby who has lost his mission and ended it by stating that there are serious young people out there who need his attention. Sheesh. Read the full post below.
