Claim that Mbuyiseni Ndlozi probed for rape an attempt to criminalize our leaders, says EFF

Mbuyiseni Ndlozi

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) on Monday said it was aware of coordinated attempts to criminalize its leaders.

This after the _Daily Sun _reported that EFF MP Mbuyiseni Ndlozi was being investigated for rape.

The newspaper claims the report was based on a 23-year-old woman’s affidavit.

According to the article, the woman claims she was violated at an upmarket penthouse by a man who goes by the name of Quinton who she later discovered was Ndlozi.

Ndlozi’s middle name is Quinton, but he’s told the paper it was a case of mistaken identity.

The police’s Mathapelo Peters said: “We can confirm a case of rape that is in reference was indeed opened and is under investigation. While police are not liberty to disclose or confirm identities of victims/complainants and suspects, we can further confirm that Dr Ndlozi is not a suspect in this case.”

The EFF said it would support any legal action against the newspaper for deliberately defaming Ndlozi.

The party added the crisis of gender-based violence and rape must never be used to fight political battles.
