Operation Dudula leader Nhlanhla Lux angered by lots of people mourning Zim gardener Elvis Nyathi

Operation Dudula leader Nhlanhla “Lux” Dlamini, says he doesn’t regret the brutal murder of a Zimbabwean national by vigilantes in Diepsloot on Wednesday.

Posting on Twitter this Friday, Lux, whose real name is Ntlantla Mohlauhi blamed South African media and the country’s government for giving more attention to the murder of the Zimbabwean national than seven South Africans allegedly murdered by Zimbabweans.

Political parties in southern Africa yesterday roundly condemned the brutal murder of Zimbabwean national Elvis Nyathi in South Africa, with opposition Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) leader Nelson Chamisa describing his killing as an attack on all human dignity.

Nyathi, originally from Chief Malaba area in Matobo district, was stoned to death and set ablaze in Diepsloot, north of Johannesburg, by a vigilante group targeting “illegal” immigrants on Wednesday night.

His gruesome murder sparked fears of another round of Afrophobia attacks that have visited foreign nationals in that country.

South Africa’s OneSA Movement leader Mmusi Maimane urged President Cyril Ramaphosa to take action against the murder.

“Those who killed Nyathi must be arrested. We should not normalise murder as a tool for getting government attention … Take action Ramaphosa. Attacking a poor gardener is not going to resolve the issues of crime and the issues of immigration,” Maimane said.

Nyathi was a gardener and, according to his family, he had just arrived from work before he fell prey to the vigilante unit.

Action South Africa said: “The murder of Nyathi in Diepsloot is a stain on our national conscience. No person deserves to die because of their perceived immigration status. Those responsible must face the full might of the law for their heinous acts … We must never scapegoat foreign nationals for the failures of the South African government.”

Zambia’s ruling United Party for National Development spokesperson Joseph Kalimbwe said: “The sight and videos of a fellow African, Elvis Nyathi, being set alight and burnt to death in South Africa yesterday disturbs the conscience of us all in Sadc. While he was still fighting for his life, more petrol was poured into his body. Let’s change, Africa has enough bad people.”

But the Nhlanhla Lux shockingly made fun out of Elvis Nyathi’s murder
