- Home Affairs Minister, Malusi Gigaba, has the support of his home village
- Malusi has been making news headlines as he is involved in controversial political drama
- The people who grew up with him say they will support him during his difficult times
Minister Gigaba may be facing a lot of controversy and heat after his recent drama, but "his people" got his back.
The people from the village where Gigaba grew up, Mandeni, spoke up and said he has their support no matter what.
IOL News reports that Gigaba grew up in the village of Mandeni in northern KZN and went to Mathonsi Primary School. He went to Vryheid State High School.
Those who grew up and worked with him, have his interest at heart, despite the political trouble he has been in lately.
One Mandeni citizen, Khethokwakhe Mathonsi, said the people of the area will stand behind him.
He is our child. We were happy when he was appointed to the important portfolio of finance minister. Clearly the tide was against him but we still throw our weight behind him. Life is not about always eating sweets and drinking milk.
Sometimes you have to swallow bitter things yet move on with your life, otherwise you will not complete the journey ahead.
This while tongues were wagging over a kinky video of Gigaba that was leaked recently.
According to Gigaba, it is all part of a plan to ruin his political career and prevent him from ever becoming the president of South Africa.
