ActionSA has reacted with shock at Makhosi Khoza’s claims that the party had hacked her twitter account and tweeting messages insulting other politicians.

This comes after a tweet emerged on Tuesday in which Khoza claimed that former Johannesburg mayor Mpho Phalatse and the Speaker of council, Colleen Makhubele, were fighting over a boyfriend who double-crossed them.

The controversial tweet said: “The whole City of Johannesburg shenanigans got nothing to do with coalition disagreements or politics of the day, but it’s two powerful women Dry Mpho Phalatse and Colleen Makhubele fighting for a boyfriend who double crossed both of them.”

Action SA Nkele Molapo told The Star that she was shocked at the allegations, saying the party had never hacked Khoza’s account, or used it. Molapo had said the party’s national chairperson would also comment on the matter.

Despite this, Khoza said the account that was tweeting political insults was created by Action SA for her.

“It is highly likely that it is Action SA they created this twitter account when I was still with them,” Khoza said.

Khoza said things like this happen in politics when asked if she would apologise for the damage caused to both Phalatse and Makhubele.

Meanwhile, Makhubele said she was disappointed at the tweet but said she would not be distracted by dirty political tactics.

“I have important work to do in the City. We are preparing for a new government and ensuring service delivery to our people needs my attention,” Makhubele said,

On the other hand, Phalatse briefed the media yesterday, saying she was still the mayor of the City of Johannesburg despite being democratically voted out.

She said she had faith that the courts would reinstate her and her executive back in their positions.

“As far as I am concerned I still have a duty of service to the residents of Johannesburg a duty which I intend to perform to the best of my ability,” Phalatse said,

Phalatse said she would not back down and described her ousting as a take-over.

“The recent events in Johannesburg has dealt a major blow to the progress we have mad here since the beginning of the year,” Phalatse said.

Phalatse said she also wanted the courts to reverse the decisions that had been made by the new mayor of the city Dada Morero.
