Following reports that Shaka Sisulu and Kay Sexwale, who are descendants of ANC stalwarts were involved in the ANC’s ‘propaganda’ campaign, Ntsiki took to Twitter to air her views.

Mazwai was unsparing in her criticism of the pair whom she said were ‘spolit rich kids trying to be something.’

Sisulu and Sexwale have been fingered as being involved in the ‘War Room’ campaign which sought to derail the election campaigns of the DA and EFF by dispersing fake racism posters and using social media influencers to tweet their supportive views of the ANC and get paid for it.

Both have denied being involved in the campaign. Shaka is the grandson of Albertina and Walter Sisulu. He speaks openly about supporting the ANC and is an author and TV presenter on SABC 3’s Trending show. He has promised to release a statement about the War Room today.

Kay is the niece of Tokyo Sexwale and is an advisor for the Gauteng ANC.

Sihle Bolani, a PR strategist blew the cover on the project after she took the ANC to court for non payment. She was owed R2 million and revealed that the whole campaign was valued at R50 million.

About claims the War Room had dispersed fake racism posters, Mazwai said it was opening a painful wound for the nation.
