“My father told me to leave his home because I am criticizing the King”, said the journalist.

Bhekindlela Silolo, the father to the journalist did not respond when contacted on Sunday.

Reached for comments, Wandile Dludlu, the Secretary General of the People’s United Democratic Movement(PUDEMO) condemned the the decision by Thandaza Silolo’s father to disown his own son just to protect the King.

“We have been experiencing such from some of our family members as well and we want to state categorically that Silolo is fighting for the truth. These challenges will come to pass and one wonders what will the father do once we achieve democracy after disowning his own son”, said the PUDEMO Secretary General.
