- EFF leader Julius Malema shared a post of a message online allegedly from the Gauteng SAPS with regards to Mbuyiseni Ndlozi
- Ndlozi was recently accused of rape and the message shared by Malema seemingly clears Ndlozi of those allegations
- South Africans do not believe the message is legitimate and are trying to make sense of it on social media
Economic Freedom Fighters member Mbuyiseni Ndlozi was recently accused of being involved in a rape incident by a well-known media publication. EFF leader Julius Malema has now come out in Ndlozi's defence.
Taking to social media, Malema shared two screenshots of a WhatsApp message with the details of Brigadier Mathapelo Peters of the Gauteng South African Police Services. The message states that Ndlozi was not involved in the rape incident.
Although names cannot be mentioned as this is an ongoing case, it was confirmed through the message shared by Malema that Ndlozi is not involved in the matter. South Africans, however, seem sceptical about the message.
Take a look at Malema's post below:
Below are just a few of the responses left under Malema's tweet:
"Is Ndlozi innocent? Say it with your chest!"
"A case was opened, OK. Ngicela case number. I'll find out everything else myself..."
"Eish EFF or Ndlozi must do something people can't do this because rape is not child's play, it's a very sensitive issue."
"Not being a suspect doesn't mean he didn't do it."
Earlier, Briefly News reported that Ntsiki Mazwai wants Ndlozi to step down due to the rape allegations. Taking to social media, Ntsiki tweeted:
"Ndlozi needs to step down till he clears his name."
The woman in the story said that Ndlozi introduced himself as "Quinton" and he sexually assaulted her. According to the woman, she was in and out of consciousness as everything took place.
However, South African model Babalwa Mneno defended Ndlozi on social media. Ndlozi has been accused of rape by an unknown woman and Babalwa feels that he could never do such a thing. She said:
"Mbuyiseni Ndlozi... I know very well. He would never do such!"
