Mngoma took to social media to say that she was in safe hands and thanked the SAPS later that evening.

"I want to thank the SAPS for protecting me. I can’t say much about what happened but I want to assure everyone I’m in safe hands," she said.

Gigaba tweeted about the incident and alluded to the whole matter being performative and blown out of proportion.

“All I know is that the ‘key witness’ they were desperately trying to hype up with this stunt," he said.
