Musician Busiswa has slammed the Democratic Alliance (DA) for "trying too hard" over accusations that EFF deputy president Floyd Shivambu benefited from money being taken from VBS bank‚ telling the party to instead focus on a response to the Khayelitsha fire happening in the province they govern.

Cape Town Fire and Rescue Service divisional commander Edward Bosch told said that one person was killed and more than 1‚000 shacks were destroyed in a fire early on Saturday in Khayelitsha‚ Cape Town. More than 4‚000 people were thought to have lost their homes in the blaze.

The DA took to Twitter as rescue and relief efforts continued in the area to post about Shivambu and demanded that he and the EFF #PayBackTheMoney.

The party last week received confirmation that parliament’s joint committee on ethics and members’ interests would be launching a probe into Shivambu over payments he allegedly received via his brother.

Busiswa was watching and took to her own page to slam the party.

The singer was challenged by some on social media‚ who pointed out that the ward in which the fire took place was run by the ANC in the Western Cape.

Busiswa hit back at one critic and said the party should care about the people under their watch instead of "exaggerating character assassinations".
