Advocate Dali Mpofu has suggested that his “shut up” comment at the Zondo Commission is being used to position him as the disruptor, although he made the comment after being disrupted.
Advocate Dali Mpofu took to Twitter on Tuesday, 23 March 2021, to comment on the ongoing debate on whether his “shut up” comment was appropriate. Mpofu was cross-examining Minister of Public Enterprises, Pravin Gordhan as the legal representative of Tom Moyane. During his cross examination, Mpofu was interrupted by Gordhan’s legal representative, Michelle Le Roux.
In response, Mpofu told Le Roux to “shup up.” The comment then became topical, without much focus on the context in which it was said. Moreover, the comment drew focus away from Gordhan admitting that he could not prove through empirical evidence some of the claims he levelled against Moyane.
Mpofu has since suggested that the comment has now become the focus for those who wish to misrepresent him. Moreover, he ended his commentary on the matter by writing, “They can go and jump in the nearest lake.”

You’re wasting your time Thabiso..Facts are inconvenient to such people..The game is:
“Lets blame & attack the interruptee,NOT the interruptor”
I’d rather die a 1000 times than succumb to such indignity & disrespect!It will NEVER happen..
THEY CAN GO JUMP IN THE NEAREST LAKE!✊🏾 https://t.co/OsEYmUtH3g
