Parly on par­lour

CityPress - - Voices -

State Se­cu­rity Min­is­ter David Mahlobo’s pen­chant for mas­sages has made him the butt of jokes in Par­lia­ment. As he fielded ques­tions this week, op­po­si­tion MPs took ad­van­tage of dis­clo­sures he made af­ter al­le­ga­tions sur­faced of his friend­ship with a known rhino horn smug­gler who runs a spa fre­quented by Mahlobo.

The DA’s Mike Wa­ters, un­con­vinced about a Mahlobo re­ply, quipped: “The min­is­ter seems to be an ex­pert at mas­sag­ing an­swers.” But then DA MP Stevens Mok­galapa took things a bit too far, say­ing Mahlobo “is work­ing very hard for his mas­sage par­lour slush fund­ing”.
