Somizi reacts to the violence gripping South Africa
Versatile Mzansi entertainer Somizi Mhlongo-Motaung is calling for something to be done as South Africa continues to suffer violent protests. The turmoil started in KwaZulu-Natal as the masses demanded the release of Jacob Zuma from prison.
The looting of shopping malls and commercial vehicles soon spread to Gauteng before the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) was called upon after the South African Police Services (SAPS) got overwhelmed.
TV star, radio personality, and dancer Somizi has since gone onto social media to voice his disapproval of the violent events.
