ANC opened a case of crimen injuria against Steve Hofmeyr on Monday afternoon at the Johannesburg Central Police Station. Hofmeyr tweeted a tweet against former president Nelson Mandela’s daughter Zindzi Mandela. 
Hofmeyer tweeted that: “Dear @zilevandamme and @ZindziMandela I’m a South African tax-paying citizen. Effectively, I AM your boss. You WILL jump when I say so and you WILL ask how high. And when you come to take our lives land, you WILL die. Our contract is that simple. And don’t you forget it.”

This is not the first time the South African born singer goes controversial on social media, mostly over racial slanders.

Steve tweeted on Monday that  “I’d like to reverse my tweet for the sake of transformation and unity: ‘Dear public servants. I serve you and when you say jump I shall ask how high. And when you come to take my land and kill my family I shall give you free access to my home. I promise.”
