Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.
Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

The ANC’s Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans Association in Gauteng’s Sedibeng region on Sunday rallied behind Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma and pressed criminal charges against a man who insulted her on social media.

Following in the tracks of ANC deputy secretary-general Jessie Duarte and party spokesperson Pule Mabe – who have both spoken out against the public attacks on Dlamini-Zuma for her anti-smoking stance as well as government regulations under the national lockdown period, the Sedibeng Military Veterans Association said on Sunday “racists must start to know that the law bites”.

Regional secretary Titus Mpondo said outside Mondeor Police Station in the south of Johannesburg that their office bearers met earlier on Sunday morning and agreed that “a case of crimen injuria and violation of the national disaster laws should be opened against one white guy on social media who is heard and seen insulting the minister with her private parts”.
