Followers concerned about Lux’s social withdrawal after claims of bomb attacks
POLITICAL activist Nhlanhla “Lux” Dlamini’s silence on social media has made some of his entourage acutely eager to know his whereabouts after a controversial bomb incident.
With all the attention-grabbing events that claimed spots on trends this year, Lux has been among the sizzling subjects.
Where is Nhlanhla Lux? Social media has exclaimed.
The Soweto Parliament leader, who has made headlines for combating crime in Soweto, claimed that there was a petrol bomb attack at his Soweto home on the day of the EFF-led “national shutdown”.
When Dlamini alleged that his home in Soweto had been bombed, all eyes were on him and his family. Some people thought the story was made up.
A Twitter user named Nekiyoh is among those asking about his whereabouts: “And where is Mr 10 past 4? @ nhlanhla_lux_ are you still mourning bra? @Julius_S_Malema is not so so far away from you. Can they check on that window too?”
His followers cannot seem to forget “ten past four”, a term that has turned into a trendy and witty expression that has taken social media platforms by storm.
The last interactive post he shared on his Twitter account was when he said that his house had got hit by two bombs.
“My house just got hit with two bombs; all my neighbours’ windows are shattered. Imagine my house. We beat the EFF at their own game on the streets by defending Soweto brilliantly with all law enforcement on our side. So they bomb and kill my entire family because they lost,” said Dlamini.
Attempts to get comment from Dlamini were unsuccessful at the time of publication.
