Ngizwe Mchunu no stranger to controvers­y

- By Sandile Motha

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.
