Sunday World has reported that Xolani Khumalo, the host of Sizok’thola, and Aubrey Tau, the boss of Moja Love, have been receiving death threats. The crime-busting reality show, aimed at dismantling drug businesses in Johannesburg, appears to have angered certain individuals or groups. Despite the threats, Xolani and Aubrey are determined to continue their work and have taken measures to ensure their safety.
Xolani Khumalo collaborates with law enforcement officers and investigative journalists to expose and bring drug dealers to justice. This relentless pursuit of justice has apparently led to the issuance of death threats against him and Aubrey Tau.
The threats demand the cancellation of the show as a consequence.
These guys are getting away with crime they must must dance.

Not every black person is your brother. To destroy Black Americans,the racist enemy used Jamaicans,Haitians & other illegal foreigners to flood BA communities with drugs & add to crime. Nigerians,Zimbabweans & other illegal foreigners do the same to South Africans #sizokthola pic.twitter.com/4JdX3MyT9I
