HILLARY GARDEE CASE: Why is Floyd Shivambu so quiet? (OPINION)

Godrich Gardee's death has prompted a number of EFF luminaries to voice their grief and outrage. Hillary Gardee, the daughter of a prominent opposition party politician, was tragically killed in a tragic accident. After being kidnapped from a Nelspruit Super Spar, Hillary was brutally killed. Her corpse was found in the woods four days after she went missing. Gunshot wounds were found on her skull, as well as evidence of rape.

In the case of Hillary Clinton's murder, three men have been taken into custody. Several EFF heavyweights, including the CIC, have posted images of the suspects on social media after their court appearance. After the suspects' identities were made public, the EFF CDEs expressed their rage via the media. The fact that just one contender has come forward to publicly name and shame these individuals caught my attention. Here we have Deputy President Floyd Shivambu, who is the subject of the debate. Shivambu didn't mention the suspects once on his social media timeline, according to our research.

Shivambu's buddy, Philemon Lukhele, was one among the accused detained. In ANCYL and SASCO at Wits, "Philemon Lukhele and Floyd were good friends," a Twitter user said. Julian Malema made some commotion over Philemon Lukhele, calling him a witch. Some Twitter users advised him to disclose the relationship between Philemon and Shivambu. The two seem to have known one other for a long time and have a strong bond.

Now, the real issue is, why has Floyd Shivambu been so reticent in recent weeks? The other EFF leaders are making noise over the suspects, but he is not. Is it because he's devoted to Philemon, his buddy, or is there another factor at play? "They wear suits and call themselves gentlemen," says Mark Julius Malema. Non-addicts of the nyaope Malema told mourners in Mbombela that "they possess houses in Nelspruit and some of them have political credentials."

He avoided eye contact when he went to meet Godrich Gardee and his wife Shivambu at their home. See a clip here.
