Threats on Khoza from Cape teen
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
