Presenter Xolani Khumalo and the rest of the crew of the drug-busting MojaLOVE show ‘Sizokuthola’ has handed himself over to the police.
The Xolani Khumalo Foundation on Tuesday confirmed that their founder, Sizokuthola presenter Xolani Khumalo, handed himself over to police at the Katlehong North police station.
The foundation says Khumalo, who is facing a murder charge, was told that he should hand himself over in connection with a recent filming of the show where an alleged drug dealer died when Khumalo and his team visited him.
Robert “Kicks” Varrie was declared dead after being interrogated during the filming of Sizokuthola and then dropped off at the Thelle Mogoerane regional hospital in Vosloorus last week, and that was how the presenter came under fire.
Police spokesperson Lt-Col Mavela Masondo in July confirmed that a murder case was opened at Vosloorus against the presenter and the matter is still under investigation.
However, the foundation has since shared that the team acted in line with the law during the operation.
Following the accusations, Khumalo gave up on Tuesday and complied with an arrest warrant, however, even though he did not surrender by the deadline, he was deemed a fugitive by the police.
