In a statement, Moja Love says it is also investigating the circumstances surrounding Varrie’s death.
The TV Channel, however, maintains that its crew was with law enforcement officials during the raid that preceded Vallerie’s death and did everything in accordance with the law.
“We will wait for the official autopsy results for cause of death. The show continues to work with law enforcement agencies and in each of the shows, case numbers can be shared including that the suspects are or were handed over to the authorities for further investigations and legal processes.”
Some social media users have also come to Khumalo’s defence, saying he has been doing far more than what police have been able to do by working with their communities.
During a recent visit to the Y studios in Johannesburg, the man at the centre of the storm shared what drives him to continue the drug fight despite threats to his life.
Speaking to YNews, some Yires commended Xolani for the great work he has been doing in a bid to rid the country of drugs, which continue to destroy lives and families.
They say Xolani’s programme shows the power of community crime-fighting structures.
HANDS OFF XOLANI! ACTUALLY PRODUCE MORE PEOPLE LIKE HIM in every city in this country because it is evident that the police are not doing their jobs!!! Many homes were destroyed because of these drug dealers. #Sizokthola https://t.co/ZZPdMoiNwV

They Were Just Waiting For One Slightly Bait To Get Xolani Khumalo Off The Hook, Just Exactly At A Point Where They Want Him Best & This Case is Pretty Much Enough To Show Him Who is Who. Xolani Was Becoming More Of A Threat To The Real Culprits At The Top. #Sizokthola pic.twitter.com/PkcFflR1Ok
