Social media drums up conspiracies about Chicco Twala’s rant

While some understood this as pure rage from a disappointed father, others found the Chicco Twala video to be a little peculiar.

A day after Sello Chicco Twala topped the trends list for blasting his son in a viral video, peeps on social media have scrutinised his words.

Chicco Twala son is still in custody

The video surfaced on social media, on Thursday, showing an enraged Chicco Twala blasting his son, Longwe Twala, for his alleged involvement in a theft case.

He categorically disowned Longwe, as he handed him over to Diepkloof police.

Chicco Twala went as far as permitting the execution of Longwe should he attempt an escape from custody, stating that he was going to oppose his bail application, if he made one in his upcoming court appearance.

Reports have confirmed that Longwe’s arrest was not a hoax. The former boyfriend of Zandile Khumalo — who is the sister of the famous and controversial singer, Kelly Khumalo — is still behind bars.

Social media drums up conspiracies around viral video

More than the rage heard from Chicco Twala, in the video, people were perturbed by the things that slipped out of the veteran music producer’s mouth.

The video began with Twala stating that he wished Longwe was the one who killed former Orlando Pirates goalkeeper, Senzo Meyiwa.

“I always said that I so wish [that] it was you who killed Senzo Meyiwa so that you can rot in jail, rot in jail,” he screamed.

While some understood this as pure rage from a disappointed father, others found the charge to be a little peculiar considering that his son is directly involved in Meyiwa’s murder investigation.

Longwe was present with Zandile, at the Vosloorus residence of Kelly Khumalo, when Meyiwa was fatally shot in October 2014.

The Khumalos and Twalas maintain that Meyiwa died as a result of a robbery. However, evidence has surfaced suggesting that key evidence may have been withheld in the investigation.

AfriForum has since joined the probe and as much as the case has gone cold, Longwe is still considered a person of interest in the murder.

This is what social media thinks of Twala’s bizarre comments.
