Actress Pearl Thusi is one of the celebrities whose name has been linked to the ANC ‘war room’ saga, which was allegedly set up to sway votes before the 2016 local government elections.
Pearl’s name popped up on the full list of ‘war room’ members when whistleblower and PR expert Sihle Bolani filed a second lawsuit against the ANC last week.
Sihle first filed a R2.3-million lawsuit against the ruling party in January, claiming that the party owed her for “services rendered”.
However, the matter was struck off the court roll but Sihle has filed another lawsuit for a whopping R4-million isn’t paid the R1 million promised to her as compromise.
Sihle also claimed in court papers that Pearl was involved in a ‘Right To Vote’ campaign which was part of the grand ‘war room’ plan.
TshisaLIVE recently sat down with the actress and had to ask about the fiasco.
Pearl seemed dumbstruck by the allegations and claimed she knew nothing about the debacle.
“Why do wanna tell me about a knife that someone is trying to stick in my back, that I didn’t even know about? I don’t know anything about what you are saying or what you were about to say,” she said.
