SA: Police Minister Visits Former Operation Dudula Leader's Home After Bomb Allegations
South Africa’s Police Minister Bheki Cele and senior police officers on Monday visited the home of Nhlanhla “Lux” Dlamini following reports of a bombing incident.
According to IOL, it is alleged that two commercial explosives, like the ones used in mines or ATM bombings, exploded at Lux’s family home in Pimville, Soweto, in the early hours of Monday morning.
Cele said they were taking the threats seriously and the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (Hawks) and forensic teams were deployed to the area to investigate the claims. He said:
It seems minor until you see the damage… The explosives used were quite powerful. This is a form of thuggery and we hope that SAPS teams find answers. We are expecting a report from the forensic teams.
A case of public violence and malicious damage to property has been registered.
Lux, who is president of the Soweto parliament and former leader of Operation Dudula, has blamed the opposition Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party led by Julius Malema for the attack.
