Redi Tlhabi has responded to claims levied against her by former president Jacob Zuma at the Zondo Commission
The veteran radio personality and journalist has laughed off the allegation that she is currently working on a movie about the politicians highly-publicised rape trial.
Zuma has accused Tlhabi of being a spy, claiming that she had been part of a 'co-ordinated attempt to assassinate his character, which apparently included branding him as a rapist, reports TimesLIVE:
"The movie Redi Tlhabi is making is being done in the US and is named Raped by Power."
The journalist had penned a novel back in 2017 on the life of activist Fezekile Kuzwayo, whom Zuma was acquitted of raping back in 2005.
Tlhabi has taken a light-hearted approach to the situation, saying that both she and her husband were surprised to learn she was making a movie:
"You guys are joking? For real? Maybe he read I was going to study and work overseas? Maybe?"
