The residents of Khayelitsha have been plagued by fires in recent weeks, and according to Busiswa, the Democratic Alliance (DA) is not doing enough to help those affected by the blaze.

The muso claims that the DA are too worried about Floyd Shivambu’s involvement in the VBS bank heist, instead of focusing on more pressing issues that affects the province that the party governs.

The divisional commander for the Cape Town Fire and Rescue Service, Edward Bosch has issued a statement that reveals that so far, only one person has lost their life in the fires, however, over 4000 are now thought to be homeless.

Instead of showing support for the rescue teams involved or sending condolences to the families that have been affected, the DA went on to social media to rather point fingers at Shivambu and demand that he pays back the money.

Briefly.co.za learned that Busiswa was unamused by the DA’s behaviour and she called them out on it. The muso told them that they were trying too hard to make Floyd Shivambu appear to be the bad guy because in the muso’s opinion, his brother was to blame.

The artist goes on to say that the DA has the perfect opportunity to help people, especially since the fires have occurred in one of the political party's own municipalities.

TimesLIVE reports that other social media users did not agree with Busiswa’s comments about the DA, as the parts of Khayelitsha that have been affected by the fires are in one of the wards run by the ANC.

The muso’s comments caused a stir over social media but she still stands with her feelings on the matter, despite some of the hate that has come her way.
