In a YNews exclusive, anti-drug activist and host of the popular TV show called, Sizok’thola, Xolani Khumalo, has warned that the country will see a repeat of the 1976 uprising should the Ministers of Police, Justice and Home Affairs not accept their memorandum of demands tomorrow.
The crime fighter, along with various other organisations, will be marching to the Union Buildings against the drug scourge that’s wreaking havoc in the country.
Khumalo says they want the immediate implementation of the National Drug Master Plan, which was introduced in 2013.
He is urging all South Africans to join the fight against the scourge that’s threating families and the future of South Africa.
In July, social media went abuzz following the death of Robert Varrie, an alleged drug dealer who died after the Sizok’thola crew’s visit to his house in Katlehong.
Rumours of the crime-fighter’s arrest also went viral.
Khumalo has, however, disputed the claims.
He says no case was ever opened against him, but the police are still investigating.
Khumalo has set the record straight on assertions that his show had been canned due to the controversy, slamming the hearsay as fake news.
The crime fighter has established a foundation in his name.
He says he has been contacted by some political parties, who have voiced interest in joining their anti-drug march on Friday.
While he welcomes working together with politicians – Khumalo says he doesn’t want politics to overshadow the issue at hand.
He believes the country is facing the current drug scourge due to a lack of competent leaders.
