    ‘Drunk’ KZN Premier accused of assaulting Jacob Zuma supporter

    KZN Premier Sihle Zikalala is the subject of fresh criminal charges on Sunday, after prominent radio DJ and staunch Jacob Zuma supporter Ngizwe Mchunu accused him of assault. The incident allegedly took place last night.

    The pair were in attendance at the Ingoma KaZwelonke Competition – an event which also invited the Zulu Royal Family. Although details remain sketchy at this point, it’s understood Mchunu and Zikalala had clashed with each other at a prayer event for Msholozi earlier this week.

    Things properly boiled over on Saturday night, according to Mchunu. He’s confirmed to local media sources that assault charges have been opened against the KZN Premier – who has also been accused of ‘being a bit drunk’ during this unfortunate altercation.

    This isn’t the first time Mr. Zikalala has been accused of dishing out the heavy-handed treatment. During last year’s July Riots, he was captured on camera landing blows on an alleged looter.

    The footage prompted national outrage, and EFF Deputy Leader Floyd Shivambu branded his behaviour as ‘outright foolishness’. The KZN Premier is yet to respond to these latest accusations, but we are expecting a statement in due course.
