A video showing DA Gauteng leader Solly Msimanga with a bloody face has surfaced on social media.
In the video, a man accuses Msimanga of owing him R1.4 million.
According to DA MPL Fred Nel, the man had attempted to extort Msimanga.
A man, who allegedly attacked DA Gauteng provincial leader Solly Msimanga, did so in an attempt to get him to pay a debt owed by a member of his family.
This is according to DA Gauteng provincial chair Fred Nel, who was speaking on behalf of Msimanga.
In the video clip, the man, out of shot, says he came to beat up Msimanga because he is a “liar and a thief”.
Msimanga then retorts by asking, “I owe you money?”
Meanwhile, it appears in the video that Msimanga is speaking to the police, as he asks for a reference number and asks if they are sending them (police) now.
According to Nel, the incident took place on Thursday afternoon in Benoni, at the business premises of Msimanga’s cousins.
