Trouble In Paradise: Mansion Of Ex-Operation Dudula Leader Nhlanhla Lux Bombed During EFF Shutdown
Nhlanhla “Lux” Dlamini’s mansion in Pimville, Soweto, was attacked with bombs twice during the protests that the EFF organised.
The shutdown demands that President Cyril Ramaphosa quit his job and that load-shedding should end.
Nhlanhla Lux, who leads the Soweto Parliament, alleged that the EFF (Economic Freedom Fighters) bombed his luxury home on Monday morning.
Writing on social media, Lux alleged that at least two petrol bombs were thrown at his home, with one hitting the roof.
He said his house was not destroyed, but his neighbour’s house had been damaged.
“My house just got hit with two bombs, all my neighbour’s windows are shattered imagine my house.
We beat the EFF at their own game on the streets by defending Soweto brilliantly with the all law enforcement on our side.
So they bomb & kill my entire family because they lost,” wrote Lux on Twitter.

Nhanhla Lux said he got phone calls from people who lived near him saying that explosives and shootings were happening near his house.
“Just after 4am I received calls from the entire neighbourhood saying there were bombs and gunshots going off. ‘We think it is at your house’. I received calls from people inside my house saying ‘We don’t know what to do. A bomb hit the roof and there was a second explosion in the yard’. You look at all my neighbours’ windows, they are all shattered so you can imagine the quality of the bombs,” Dlamini said.
Police are investigating the possibility that someone used explosives bought from Mozambique. High-ranking police officials visited Nhlanhla Lux’s bombed house. The police minister, Bheki Cele, also visited the house on Monday morning.
