Ngizwe Mchunu no stranger to controversy
One of the suspects behind the recent unrest, Ngizwe Mchunu, is a former SABC radio and TV host turned maskandi music promoter. Mchunu is no stranger to controversy.
The man, who hails from emabhuqwini village in northern Kwazulu-natal, is regarded as a fierce Zulu nationalist and a traditionalist.
These attributes coupled with his wit saw him being head-hunted by Ukhozi FM.
His popularity was not without controversy though as in 2017 he was sacked on charges of bringing the station in disrepute.
