Errant Gigaba clings to power at all cost
HE DENIED he was ever involved in state capture, and that he helped the Guptas to get South African citizenship.
He has also been linked with another rich family, the Oppenheimers, giving them permission to build a private terminal at OR Tambo International Airport, which he has, of course, also denied.
The Constitutional Court and the Public Protector have found that the socialite Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba lied under oath.
Perjury is a serious offence, especially for a government minister, and like former finance minister Nhlanhla Nene did, Gigaba should have done the honourable thing and resigned.
Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has given President Cyril Ramaphosa 20 days to take action against the errant minister.
But Gigaba is unfazed by all the controversy. He says he hasn’t been found guilty of any wrongdoing and intends to fight on to the bitter end to clear his name and further his political ambitions. He hopes to be president one day.
Politician, socialite and now the romantic. A video of Gigaba engaging in a solo sex act has gone viral and caused a public sensation. His enemies want to see him destroyed.
Though he is like a cat on a hot tin roof, he smiles like a Cheshire cat.
