- Vytjie Mentor claims to have been let down by the Minister of Police Bheki Cele and said she wanted ‘out’ of the country
- She had apparently lost faith in Cele when she found out his wife was on a cruise with Malusi Gigaba’s wife
- Mentor is known for her outspoken and often outlandish claims, but has been credited with exposing the Guptas and state capture
An emotional Vytjie Mentor claims to have been let down and left heartbroken by Police Minister Bheki Cele and said she wanted ‘out’ of the country. Mentor was of the opinion that Cele had not provided her with adequate protection from those who wanted to harm her.
Mentor addressed Cele in a Facebook post. She wrote: “Dear Bheki Cele. I trusted you with my life and the lives of my kids. I am heartbroken beyond explanation. Keep your country, I want out, whichever way.”
The outspoken former ANC MP apparently lost faith in Cele’s ability or will to protect her after she found out his wife had joined Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba’s wife on a cruise near Greece.
Briefly.co.za gathered that some of Mentor’s supporters have gone as far as suggesting setting up a fund to pay for private security on her behalf. Mentor is convinced her life is in danger because she had exposed corruption and state capture.
Mentor has in the past written about Gigaba’s alleged role in state capture. She claims Gigaba played a central role in the state capture scandal involving the Gupta family and former president Jacob Zuma.
In another post Mentor concluded: “Maybe I need to begin to accept reality and to prepare myself for seeking Asylum. I am not safe in this country anymore, and maybe I need to accept that there is no hope left anymore…”
This was followed just a couple of hours later with a post in which it looks like Mentor decided not to give up on South Africa just yet.
The post reads: “I AM STILL IN THIS COUNTRY AND I WILL FIGHT AND WILL CONTINUE TO EXPOSE CORRUPTION. THEY WILL HAVE TO KILL ME TO SHUT ME UP. I AM HERE TO STAY AND TO FIGHT ON.”
Mentor is well-known for uncovering corruption and blowing the whistle on state capture, she has, however, made some outlandish claims in the past.
Some of her claims include, someone somewhere controlling the weather in the Western Cape and the drought being punishment for the people voting for the DA in the province, Malusi Gigaba being a Zimbabwean national and Jacob Zuma was an apartheid spy.
