WATCH|EFF Shutdown Leads To Bombing Of Ex-Operation Dudula Leader Nhlanhla Lux’s Mansion

Nhlanhla “Lux” Dlamini, the ex-Operation Dudula leader, had his luxury house in Pimville, Soweto, bombed twice during the ongoing protests organized by the EFF.

The people are demanding President Cyril Ramaphosa to step down from his position and that the power cuts (load-shedding) be stopped, among other things.

Nhlanhla Lux, the leader of the Soweto Parliament, said the rogue EFF party members bombed his mansion. The alleged shocking incident happened in the early hours of Monday.

Lux wrote on Twitter that two firebombs were thrown at his house, and one hit the roof.

He confirmed that his mansion was not damaged; however, his neighbour’s residence was.

“My house just got hit with two bombs, all my neighbour’s windows are shattered imagine my house.

We beat the EFF at their own game on the streets by defending Soweto brilliantly with the all law enforcement on our side.

So they bomb & kill my entire family because they lost,” wrote the ex-Operation Dudula leader, Nhlanhla Lux.

Nhanhla Lux said his neighbours notified him that bombs and gunshots were going off at his house.

“Just after 4am I received calls from the entire neighbourhood saying there were bombs and gunshots going off. ‘We think it is at your house’. I received calls from people inside my house saying ‘We don’t know what to do. A bomb hit the roof and there was a second explosion in the yard’. You look at all my neighbours’ windows, they are all shattered so you can imagine the quality of the bombs,” Dlamini said.

Police are looking into the matter and investigating the possibility that the explosives used might have been smuggled from Mozambique.

  High-ranking police officers visited the fancy home of Nhlanhla Lux. The police minister, Bheki Cele, also visited the mansion on Monday morning.
