A video of former Pretoria Mayor and Gauteng DA Leader Solly Msimanga being beaten up and bloodied has surfaced online.
In the video posted by @samkelemaseko an SABC journalist, the unidentified businessman says he beat him up for not paying him the R 1,4 million Solly stole from him, and calls him a liar and thief.
“You are a liar and a thief and this is what happens to liars and thieves”

The man made it clear that this is not political, but personal saying: “You are not going to turn this into a political storm for yourself in my direction.”
The man also claims that he was defending himself, “You can’t push me around and not expect me to hit back.”
He also alleges that Solly Msimanga was armed, but there’s no evidence of him carrying any weapon.
The man accuses him of beating him first and says it has been captured in video, footage of this hasn’t been made available.
A video of how it all started has surfaced online.
I was feeling pity for him but Solly is the one who started the fight. It just didn’t go as planned for him.
Then he tried to spin the story.
Then he tried to say they have made peace.
