In November 2010, in an interview with the newspaper Rapport, she caused controversy by declaring that she did not like black people or understand them. Following the statements, the newspaper Die Burger decided to withdraw her column. She refused to retract her remarks and to condemn them. She just clarify she loved black people and it was "perhaps unfair" to put them all in the same category.

For her novel Thula-thula, Ashe won in 2010 K Sello Duiker prize of South African literature.
