EFF KZN spokesperson arrested for Ngizwe Mchunu's attack during press briefing

Mazwi Blose was arrested for allegedly attacking Ngizwe Mchunu last month

Former Ukhozi FM presenter Ngizwe Mchunu may have the last laugh after the EFF KwaZulu Natal spokesperson Mazwi Blose was arrested yesterday. Blose was allegedly part of the EFF members and supporters who attacked Mchunu during a press conference last month.


Blose's arrest comes after Mchunu opened a case of assault against three men who attacked him in Durban. The briefing was originally meant to take place at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, but it was moved to a different location when he was stopped by heavily armed police officers when he tried to make his way through to the stadium. Mchunu held the briefing at a different location which was stormed by EFF members including Blose. In a video clip that was widely shared, EFF members can be seen barging into his media briefing that was held at a private venue where they took down cameras and tables live on his Facebook Page called Ngizwe Online. Mchunu is seen retaliating by slapping one of the four men who barged into the briefing. Another man can be seen pulling out a machete threatening to hack Mchunu. It is alleged that the EFF members went to the venue in two minibus taxis. This came after Mchunu had vowed that EFF leader Julius Malema would never host his party's manifesto launch in Durban, which was held on Saturday. This angered Malema who in return called Mchunu a small boy with his fans promising to teach the former Roots presenter a lesson not to mess with the red berets.


KZN SAPS spokesperson Colonel Robert Netshiunda confirmed the incident. "Police have arrested 37-year-old Mazwikayise Brian Blose in connection with cases of malicious damage to property and theft which he allegedly committed on 23 January 2024. The suspect is alleged to have damaged cameras, chairs and a table and also took a cellphone during an incident which happened at a hotel on K. E Masinga Road in Durban. He made a brief appearance in the Durban Magistrates Court yesterday and was released on a warning and will appear again in court at a later date," he said.
