The ANC says it will be laying criminal charges against Steve Hofmeyr on Thursday, following the threats he made to Denmark ambassador Zindzi Mandela and DA MP Phumzile van Damme on Twitter.On Tuesday night, the controversial singer tweeted to both women, saying: "Dear @zilevandamme and @ZindziMandela I'm a South African tax-paying citizen. Effectively, I AM your boss. You WILL jump when I say so and you WILL ask how high. And when you come to take our lives&land, you WILL die. Our contract is that simple. And don't you forget it."Dear @zilevandamme and @ZindziMandela I'm a South African tax-paying citizen. Effectively, I AMyour boss. You WILL jump when I say so and you WILL ask how high.
