    A big snake spotted near Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula’s house

    South Africa’s parliament speaker Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula is causing a stir on social media after a snake was spotted near her house this morning. A video shared by SABC news reporter Chriselda Lewis showed a massive snake near Mapisa-Nqakula’s home, sparking a flurry of reactions online.

    Mapisa-Nqakula made headlines again as she reportedly handed herself over to police at the Lyttelton police station in Tshwane. She is facing corruption allegations, accused of soliciting and receiving R2.3 million in bribes.

    When asked about the snake, Lewis explained that it was seen two houses away from where she was reporting. She also revealed that Mapisa-Nqakula’s neighbours had alerted security, as the house where the snake was coming from is vacant.

    The situation escalated when police reportedly clashed with Mapisa-Nqakula’s husband, Charles Nqakula, during a raid at their residence. Nqakula allegedly tried to block the police from searching a sacred sangoma’s hut (indumba) belonging to Mapisa-Nqakula.

    The National Prosecuting Authority’s Investigating Directorate conducted the raid, seeking to seize incriminating documents and items believed to be proceeds of crime.

    The controversy surrounding Mapisa-Nqakula intensified with Nombasa Ntsondwa-Ndhlovu’s claims that she paid the parliament speaker R2.3 million in bribes when Mapisa-Nqakula was the minister of defense.

    Social media users were quick to react to the snake sighting, with some joking about the situation. One user remarked on the snake’s speed, noting that pythons are typically lazy movers. Another joked that the snake was “bringing back the money it collected last night.”

    The incident has sparked a mix of reactions online, highlighting the ongoing interest and scrutiny surrounding Mapisa-Nqakula’s case.
