South Africans have voiced their concerns over what they perceive as an unjust legal process as Sizok’thola TV presenter Xolani Khumalo finds himself in deeper legal waters.
Xolani Khumalo, who was recently charged with the murder of a suspected drug dealer, Robert Varrie, is now facing the possibility of additional charges. The news charges stem from accusations made by the family of the deceased drug dealer who died during the filming of an episode of his show.
Xolani Khumalo Faces New Charges
According to News24, the family of the late drug dealer, Robert Varrie, held a press conference in Reiger Park, Boksburg, Ekurhuleni on Friday. The family disclosed that they had enlisted the services of a private investigator named AB. AB, acting on behalf of the family, is pressing for Xolani Khumalo to face additional charges beyond the murder charge.
The family alleges that Khumalo committed theft and maliciously damaged property during the incident that led to Robert Varrie’s death.
Family Claims Theft and Missing Cash
In addition to accusations of malicious damage, the family has also claimed that Xolani Khumalo stole valuable items during the incident. These items include mobile phones, a wristwatch, and substantial cash totalling R3,000. These allegations have intensified the call for further legal action against Khumalo.
Social Media Reacts to the Controversy
The unfolding legal saga involving Xolani Khumalo has ignited a passionate debate on social media. South Africans have taken to various platforms to express outrage over the matter. Social media users expressed their frustration with the justice system.
A common thread among commenters is frustration with what they perceive as a disparity in how individuals involved in drug-related activities are treated by the justice system.
What a disgrace, this is unbelievable. Our justice system is a total joke. We are led by useless men.
Imagine a law-abiding citizen being dragged to court by an illegal drug-selling immigrant, and the state is quiet about it.
Can’t believe that the government isn’t protecting Xolani at all. This is heartbreaking.
Bloody hypocrites, how many lives were destroyed by the drug dealer. There are countless souls who are addicts. The collusion of drug dealers and security forces is not for the battle
