Anti-drug activist and Moja Love host of the popular TV show called, Sizok’thola, Xolani Khumalo, is calling on South Africans to take a stand against the drug pandemic later this month.

Khumalo, who is popular for his bold stance against the illegal trade and impact of drugs in communities, says this scourge needs all hands on deck.

The crime fighter along with the Put South Africa First Movement are planning a national shutdown, which will culminate in a march to the Union Buildings on the 15th of September.

Khumalo’s plea comes close to two months since his show was canned, following the death of Robert Varrie, an alleged drug dealer who died after the crew’s visit to his house in Katlehong last month.

Police investigations into the alleged drug dealer’s passing are ongoing.

Khumalo says they are planning on handing over a list of demands, detailing how they want government to deal with drugs.

He says one of the things they want is for drug dealers and traffickers to face harsher sentences.

The young crime activist says something must be done with the drug scourge, which has torn families apart.

Social media users have hailed Khumalo’s efforts through the show, saying he has been doing far more than what police have been able to do by working with community members.

Last month, Put South Africa First Movement along with United Patriotic Front, held a picket outside Moja Love studios in Rosebank demanding that the show be brought back.

Picket organiser and Put South Africa First’s National Chairperson, Faith Mabusela, says they believe the show’s suspension was unjust and unwarranted.
