Warrant of arrest has been issued for media personality Somizi Mhlongo after he failed to appear at the Randburg Magistrate Court where he was due to appear yesterday.

Somizi was supposed to appear for the contravention of the Disaster Management Act case which was postponed again.

The socialite will have to stand again in the Randburg Court on July 23. Somizi found himself on the wrong side of the law after he told his radio co host that government was going to ease the Lockdown.

Somizi was captured in a video telling Dineo Ranaka that Minister of Transport Fikile Mbalula had told him about government’s plans on lockdown.

Fikile Mbalula denied ever sharing government information with Somizi who was later arrested after the Minister had reported the case to the police.
