Jean Le Roux also claimed that the person behind the handle is benefiting financially from the outrage of hurtful and distressing tweets. The tweets are used to drive traffic to at least three websites that are believed to be owned by the schemer.
Jean Le Roux has tracked down the man making money from the account, and he is a South African government official and EFF councilor from Makhado. According to Le Roux, all suspicion arrows point to Anthony Matumba, who is allegedly employed by the Makhado Local Municipality in Limpopo.
It is alleged that Anthony Matumba has registered multiple websites in his name, which he has monetized using Google’s AdSense. To drive traffic to these sites and increase the ad revenue they generated, several Twitter accounts spammed links to the websites, mostly in reply to prominent Twitter personalities. One of these accounts, Tracy Zille.
