Clean SA protest action continues, despite speculation on identity of Lerato Pillay Twitter account

Published on

The Clean SA protest action is currently underway, despite the growing speculation on the real identity of the accountholder of the controversial Lerato Pillay Twitter account, which has been spearheading the movement.

The controversial Lerato Pillay Twitter account has revealed that the planned protest action today, 23 September 2020, is underway. This is despite the growing speculation that the account is run by former South African National Defence Force (SANDF) member, Sifiso Gwala. The speculation surrounding the real accountholder came amid suggestions that the account and protest action is inciting xenophobia.

Despite the controversy, the accountholder has continued to receive support from some South African citizens for the Clean SA protest. The protest action is aimed at bringing attention to the matter of the influx of alleged illegal foreign nationals in areas such as Hillbrow, Sunnyside and Kempton Park. The aim is to “clean” the city of illegal foreign nationals who are allegedly responsible for various crimes as well.

The DA’s Phumzile Van Damme and the EFF’s Naledi Chirwa are two of the political figures who commented on the revelation. Van Damme warned “Sifiso Gwala” that should the protest action get out of hand, he should be held accountable.
