Since April, Dr Makhosi Khoza and her daughter have been receiving death threats mainly because of her outspoken stand for the President to resign. She regularly calls for the end of the Guptarisation of SA.
The ANC MP on Tuesday called for the President to resign so as to save SA and the Economy.
Makhosi Khoza has posted screen grabs on Facebook of a series of SMSes sent to her phone during the week where she is told to vote against the motion of no confidence against President Jacob Zuma and to withdraw her statements regarding the secret ballot.
“Do what is best for yourself and your family,” the message continues.
“You have 21 days let(sic).”
Two days before this message the following was sent from the same number: “I will find you and I will kill you.”
And another: “You have 21 days before you die.”
Khoza responded to the messages asking for “reasons behind this ultimatum of my death” and for the sender to reveal their identity.
The Regulation of Interception of Communications and Provision of Communication-related Information Act (Rica) helped to identify the owners.
. Two independent sources confirmed to Hinnews.com that the number is registered to the Gupta beholden BLF movement.
The number of the person threatening to kill Dr Khoza is formally registered to the Gupta beholden Black First Land First (BLF) movement.
The BLF’s Andile Mngxitama denied ownership of the number and any knowledge of the matter.
“The BLF do not threaten other black people. We have a policy of dealing with sellouts and house negroes, but we won’t ever threaten their lives.
“This is a white person trying to use our name. We won’t threaten Makhosi Khoza, she’s not a politically interesting person to us. It is definitely not our number. We have a Telkom line,” he said.
A defiant Khoza has found herself in hot water with the ANC after she refused to backtrack on her initial statements in favour of a secret ballot. She further indicated that she will vote in favour of a a motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma.
