“Weeks after joining the EFF. Makes sense. When ANC speaks about spies during apartheid, they must look in the mirror. They’re all spies.”

Prince Shabazz exclaimed:

“No wonder he joined the EFF. He’s looking for political protection. Soon he will be joining the “politically motivated” chorus.”

“This is the classic case of politically motivated. The crime happened in 2017 while a staunch member of the ANC only to investigate him 6 years later immediately after he dumps the ANC.”
