- Home Affairs Minister, Malusi Gigaba, says he's under attack from forces who want to prevent him from becoming the next president
- Gigaba says he will fight back against his 'hard-working enemies'
- The minister says he won't resign from his post unless asked by the president and the ANC
The man making the most headlines these days, Minister Malusi Gigaba, says he's the target of those who fear he will one day become president.
He says there are sinister forces that want to prevent him from becoming the ANC's next leader and eventually, the president.
IOL News reports that Gigaba says these forces are behind the recent political 'attacks' against him.
According to Gigaba, he has some very hard-working foes. He told the media that his only conclusion was that someone out there doesn't want him to rule the country.
When this concentration of fury on a single individual happens it cannot be linked with anything else, it has to be linked with the fear that he has got to be stopped now.
The minister insists he is innocent of any state capture activities and that his hands are clean.
Gigaba has had a busy time lately; he was accused of lying under oath and had a kinky video leaked.
But he's not lying down without a fight. Gigaba says he will not resign unless the president asks him to.
The embattled minister threatened to fight a war and stated that he is encircled by “militant comrades who would defend him”.
He added he won't be victimised, not without consequences.
