The powerful KwaZulu-Natal-based Gcaba taxi family have expressed unhappiness that their last name is linked to the unrest in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng.
It comes after social media reported that the family donated their services to transport people to Estcourt Prison as part of an effort to pressure authorities to release the former president Jacob Zuma.
Zuma was taken to jail to serve a 15-month sentence for contempt of court.
Mandla Gcaba distanced her family from rumors of a national strike on Monday.
âAs the Gcaba family, we take our distance. We tell people that they have to stop doing this because what they are claiming is wrong and they have to stop spreading fake news. We have nothing to do with what they claim we are perpetuating what we say we are going to do.
Gcaba says they will continue to support Zuma but within the limits of the law.
âWe support Mr. Zuma as a parent and we will continue to support, but we will do so within the law. We don’t go out on the prescriptions of the law and don’t cause anything or any lawlessness or violence or any lawless situation. “
Last week, former State Security Agency top spy Thulani Dlomo visited Durban Central Police Station. However, soon after, Dlomo was released without charge.
Dlomo says his lawyer called him to meet with him at the station due to his intention to surrender to the police.
His move comes after allegations he is among those responsible for the unrest that started in KwaZulu-Natal and spread to Gauteng.
