Redi Thlabi Is Accused Of The Unthinkable

Redi hits back
Radio Host Redi Tlhambi announced that Teboho Johannes Makhoa who was the director of service Delivery in Ekurhuleni region had been shot to death. Some tweep corrected her and said Teboho was a human settlement officer and Ekurhuleni did not have a director of service delivery and that he had been killed because he was involved in the illegal selling of RDP houses. Some did not like that she had said, wow whilst announcing his death and some felt it was not her place to announce the death of the man on twitter. Redi was called a liar and a reporter of fake news.
Redi did not take the correction and criticism kindly. “I did not post motive or reason for Teboho’s murder. I posted a fact that he was shot at 28 times. That is not fake news. Are you really having a meltdown because of a title? It seems a disproportionate response to director of service delivery versus human settlements delivery,” she responded. She added that the family had asked her to spread the word and that she knew them personally as Teboho was his neighbour’s uncle. Redi also said two different members of Teboho’s family had given her the same job title.
