Solly Msimanga, a man held in high regard in South Africa’s political circles has been thrust into a scandal that left the DA Gauteng leader bruised and battered.

DA’s Solly Msimanga beaten up in alleged theft scandal - Video

Video footage showing Msimanga being scolded by an unknown man, with blood oozing out of his bruised lip and left eye, was shared by SABC News reporter Samkele Maseko on social media.

The man whose identity has yet to be revealed claimed self-defence, stating that Msimanga suffered blows to his face after he had allegedly attacked the businessman.

More shocking was the claim that Msimanga, a high-ranking figure of South Africa’s official opposition party, was carrying a loaded weapon in his waist when the brawl took place.

The two went at it with accusations of assault thrown at each other before the video ends. While details around the incident are still sketchy, it is believed that the assault took place after the businessman approached Msimanga looking for his money.
