Finding a shebeen is not a hard task for anyone looking to have a jol.
But that is not the case with the now infamous “Saxonwold shebeen” that’s on everyone’s lips since Eskom boss Brian Molefe lifted the lid on the “exclusive establishment” located near the Guptas’ larney house in Joburg.

Former Cosatu boss Zwelinzima Vavi tweeted: “Spent two days in Cape Town. I have been recalled back to Johannesburg to join the national search (for) #SaxonwoldShebeen”

An account, opened last week, has already gained over 3000 followers.
@SaxonworldShebeen tweeted yesterday: “It’s Sunday Funday with Karaoke at the #SaxonwoldShebeen – bring your friends, pick up a mic and stand a chance to win a cabinet post.”
