Threats on Khoza from Cape teen

Daily Dispatch - - News - By JEFF WICKS

THE cul­prit be­hind threats on out­spo­ken ANC MP Makhosi Khoza‚ her daugh­ter and other mem­bers of the Na­tional As­sem­bly is a “trou­bled” teenage girl from Gugulethu in Cape Town.

The rev­e­la­tion was made by Po­lice Min­is­ter Fik­ile Mbalula‚ who was on a walk­ing tour of Gle­be­lands Hos­tel in Dur­ban.

Mbalula said that as a re­sult of an ex­ten­sive cy­ber in­ves­ti­ga­tion‚ the threat­en­ing calls and mes­sages were traced to Cape Town.

“The per­son who has been threat­en­ing Dr Khoza and her fam­ily is a 17-yearold girl.”

He said that 12 un­reg­is­tered SIM cards were linked to the teen and that‚ since Au­gust‚ she had threat­ened seven mem­bers of the Na­tional As­sem­bly.

Mbalula said the teen was linked to an in­tim­i­da­tion case in Gaut­eng‚ which was opened by com­mu­ni­ca­tions min­is­ter Ayanda Dlodlo.

Mbalula said the girl was ar­rested on Au­gust 2 and ap­peared in court in Johannesburg.

She was later re­leased into the care of her par­ents. — DDC
