Malusi Gigaba

Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba revealed that a sex video, allegedly stolen from his phone and was leaked on Sunday, has been used to try and blackmail him.

Speaking to Radio 702’s Bongani Bingwa, Gigaba’s personal spokesperson Vuyo Mkhize says the minister’s phone was hacked by State Security Agency (SSA) officials but Gigaba only found out that fact about three months after he had started to receive calls with demands.

“He [Gigaba] was presented with the information by somebody working within the establishment,” Mkhize says.

Mkhize claims Malusi reported the matter to the inspector-general in September of 2017.
