Remember Makhosi Khoza? She is the ANC MP who contended on her Facebook page that the increasing protests against Zuma government aren’t the outcome of the conspiracies of white monopoly capital.
Makhosi Khoza wrote that the agitations against President Zuma’s government is a definitive sign of irrelevance and chronic leadership incapacity of the ANC.

When the ANC MP was asked if she is afraid her life is in danger, she said: “The truth is, yes sometimes I do…they are saying they are going to come here at home.
“If they come here, obviously they will be coming for my children. I fear for my children more than i fear for my self. The level of intolerance is indeed very high…
