Nhlanhla Lux quits Operation Dudula – Close source spills the beans

According to insiders, Dlamini, also known as Nhlanhla “Lux” Mohlauli, was recently kicked out of the Operation Dudula Whatsapp discussion group.

Since then, two distinct chat groups have been established by those who are in his corner and those who believe he is a traitor.

Sources alleged that plans are under way to form a political party ahead of the 2024 general elections, giving rise to some friction within the group.

“The matter is being kept under wraps,” a source told the publication.

“He was accused of being a law unto himself. Nhlanhla Lux Dlamini now concerns himself with the work at Soweto Parliament.

“You might have seen him wearing a jacket written ‘The People Shall Govern,’ he no longer wears military-style clothes. He is set to form a political party called ‘The people Shall Govern’ very soon.”

At the time of publication, Dlamini and Operation Dudula secretary Zandile Dabula had not returned calls or texts.

Operation Dudula member Keabetswe Malebo said he needed to talk to Dlamini first before he could say anything.

“I can’t comment on that issue now unfortunately until I sit down with him, I can only speak then after talking with him.”

Unauthorized spending of Dudula money

Thabang Moloi, who also serves as the organization’s leader and is at the forefront of the locals’ campaign against Eskom power outages, defended Dlamini by claiming the charges against him for unauthorized expenditure were false.

“Nhlanhla Lux is a leader and no one can take that away from him. For now, Lux is concentrating on Soweto parliament, he is still doing community work.

“Those who accuse him of mismanaging R15 000 are just lying. Lux has his own money and is worth millions. He has an aviation company and also owns a golf course. What is R15 000 to Lux really?” he asked.

He heaped praises on Dlamini, saying he occasionally covered Operation Dudula expenses such as travel costs and meals for members.

According to Moloi, Dlamini is under pressure because he opposes anything criminal, including illegal immigrants and South Africans who commit crime.

“He is against crime in general, whether you are South African or not, he won’t back down.”

Asked whether Dlamini would start a political party, Moloi wouldn’t say much, except that “an announcement” would soon be made by Soweto parliament.

Dlamini gained fame when, during the unrests in July of last year, he appeared on television in front of Maponya Mall and said that he had teamed up with law-abiding individuals to protect the shopping center from looters.

Later, under the pretense of an anti-illegal immigration effort, Operation Dudula was established, and it has since established branches in some of the provinces.

Its leaders have recently been under fire, particularly from human rights advocacy groups who claim they are fueling the flames of prejudice and xenophobia.

In interviews, Dlamini has reaffirmed that he won’t give up his work in community activism for politics.
