DA welcomes action against Twitter instigators, calls on SAPS to show Zuma siblings the same fate
31 August 2021
The DA calls on the South African Police Service (SAPS) to urgently expedite the arrests of Duduzile Zuma-Sambudla, Edward Zuma and Duduzane Zuma. In July, the DA laid criminal charges against the three Zuma siblings following comments on social media and the press encouraging and inciting violence following their father’s incarceration.
We have taken note of the action taken by the Hawks against social media influencer, Zamaswazi Majozi, for allegedly using her Twitter account to incite and ignite major rioting and looting in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng in July.
Majozi has been identified as the person behind the @/_africansoil Twitter account and stands accused of distributing content that led to the looting and burning of Brookside Mall in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal. She has since appeared before the Germiston Magistrate's Court and was granted R3000 in bail.
While the DA welcomes the arrest of individuals who are alleged to have either planned, orchestrated, or incited the looting, it seems that there are glaring disparities in the treatment of ordinary South Africans involved in the looting compared to those who are close to the political elite.
