known for his proud to be gay demeanors, local gay socialite, Sammy Venters, has impregnated a female friend Linda Jacques.
Venters, who was once involved in a spat with fellow gay socialite Alfred Somseb over straight man Hamutwe, has been fingered out as the father to Jacques’s pregnancy.
According to her rival Somseb, Venters is a sellout and hypocrite who should cease masquerading as a gay activist in the country.
"He has brought shame to all of us. He puts himself across as the realest gay rights activists and I remember him preaching to a group of Unam gay students on campus about gay pride, but he really is a hypocrite who has let us all down," said Somseb.
He said he was even more disgusted that Venters had tried to deny responsibility of Jacques’ pregnancy.
"You are certainly talking about a chameleon. I have always warned my comrades about his innuendos. Since we had a fight over Hamutwe, I have never trusted him again, and now I’m happy that the guys are able to see him for what he really is," raged Somseb, who was once involved in a fight with Venters after he had bragged about being the closet to their gay crush Hamutwe.
Linda confirmed that she had known that Venters was gay, but loved him enough to maintain sexual relations with him.
"He’s very sensitive and soft in a unique way. He understands me better than any other guy I have ever met. To the best of my knowledge we were dating until he asked me to give him space to think about his sexuality," said two months pregnant Jacques, who also claimed that Venters was single when they started their relations.
When reached for comment, Venters claimed he only had sex with Jacques once as a result of a "moment of weakness. It’s normal and a hormonal thing. It was a mistake and my friends understand, and now thanks to Somseb and his big mouth it is going to be all over the newspapers."
Venters said the situation and fatherhood will however not make him a straight man and looks to continue speaking about gay rights to his peers.
"This is who I am and if you know me very well you’d know how proud I am to be gay. I intend to be a good father and a good friend to Jacques, people like Somseb with more time on their hands for gossip mongering can go ahead and do what they do best but they will never change me," said Venters.
