Neighborhood chief defends Lindiwe Sisulu over public outburst caught on video

Chairperson of Khayelitsha Growth Discussion board Ndithini Tyhido condemned Swaartbooi’s actions, accusing him of gatecrashing Sisulu’s assembly with residents of Taiwan and of elevating points unrelated to the hearth that destroyed lots of of houses within the settlement.

Sisulu might be seen reducing her face masks and arguing with Swaartbooi, who had informed the minister that he hoped she would fulfil her guarantees.

Tyhido, who mentioned he was talking on behalf of the residents of Khayelitsha, mentioned: “The nonsensical video making the rounds is just not a illustration of the individuals of Khayelitsha.

“I converse right here with authority that this must be debated with SJC as an organisation. It’s unfair for anybody to wish to profile themselves and use the plight of the individuals whose homes had been gutted by hearth. It’s utterly nonsensical, it doesn’t deserve our consideration in any respect as organisations.

“We’re in the present day getting stories that there are people who find themselves sitting in a neighborhood corridor in the course of Covid-19 with out meals. Then some awful attention-seeking boy goes round with a video on our behalf, and we reject this.”
