She also told the commission that her estranged husband gave her a credit card - not a debit card with only R3 000 on it as he alleged.

Instead, the former minister gave her a R100 000 monthly limit, the commission heard. She added as per News24:

"There is nothing in my life that I can do with R3 000 and he knows that. So, when he says it was a debit card, that is him saying that. What [I] know is that it was a credit card.

"I didn't know how much the credit card had because when I go overseas sometimes, I would use it to buy a bag which would cost R30 000 to R40 000. Also in my life, there is nothing I can do with R3 000."
