- DA Gauteng leader Solly Msimanga continues to be in the spotlight after another video surfaced on social media after he was badly assaulted on Thursday
- The DA has also reacted to the social media posts regarding Msimanga, praising the police for arresting the assailant
- Moreover, reactions are mounting on social media and reports suggest that Msiamanga owes the person who beat him up a huge amount of cash
Another video of the Gauteng Democratic Alliance leader Solly Msimanga being beaten up has surfaced on social media.
The DA leader was allegedly assaulted by someone he owes a whopping R1.4 million and this comes after a number of images and videos of him badly bruised on Thursday afternoon.
Msimanga was also spotted in a video clip where it looked like he was calling the police to report the assault.
According to social media and reports, the politician apparently met the man whom he owed and as they say, the rest is history.
SABC political reporter Samkele Maseko took to Twitter to share the latest developments, alleging that the Gauteng leader hadn't met his payment commitments.
“This is how the entire #SollyMsimanga fight started. The said gentleman came to demand his 1.4 million rands, now in the afternoon, the two say they’ve smoked the peace pipe. Question, was there really 1.4 million rands exchanged? How? And what was it for.”
“Can we suspend the cameraman?”
“The fistfight has been suspended...”
“Ace Magashule needs to suspend this cameraman.”
“The fight was serious, perhaps the business guy previously donated to DA, and they in return never played their part! Msimanga might have been told by his masters to reconcile to avoid further publicity - we need investigative journalism on the matter.”
“The last time I've watched people fighting was on TV between John Cena and Undertaker, it was so horrible like these one - WWE Smackdown."
“Man, Oooouuucch, that was a direct hit, right on target, right on the money, right on the kisser...”
The DA has since issued a statement to the media praising the police for acting swiftly to arrest the assailant, who accused the leader of being a thief, on Thursday a afternoon.
Briefly News ran the story that the DA leader had been badly assaulted but it remained unclear who actually beat the embattled leader. Msimanga’s photos surfaced on social media on Thursday afternoon where he was seen bleeding with a swollen face.
A number of pictures coupled with a video were posted by @Abramjee on Twitter, and the post has attracted massive reactions from Mzansi users.
