I fear for my children more than I fear for myself. The level of intolerance is very high.— Dr Makhosi Khoza , ANC MP
I continue receiving death threats, even yesterday I received a death threat.— Dr Makhosi Khoza , ANC MP
Khoza has spoken out against political intimidation and says the ANCYL in KZN has expressed plans to picket outside her house.

Khoza says she won't resign and says the ANCYL must take her to a disciplinary hearing if they want her to be recalled.
She says that the ruling party has been injudicious and admitted that she is in favour of a secret ballot in the motion of no confidence in President Jacob Zuma.
"I would prefer to vote by #SecretBallot, and I wonder if other MPs will be brave enough to make their own moral call." - Dr Makhosi Khoza— 702 (@Radio702) May 14, 2017
