- Journalist Pinky Khoabane claims that an unknown 'friend' of hers had been subjected to harassment by Ranjeni Munusamy
- In a social media post, Khoabane claimed that this friend had been part of a smear campaign carried out by the top Tiso Blackstar journalist
- This comes as Munusamy faces allegations of working with and benefiting from the Crime Intelligence agency
Pinky Khoabane has claimed that Ranjeni Munusamy had targeted one of her friends with harassment.
In a social media post, Khoabane alleged that this friend, who remained unnamed, had suffered at the hands of the journalist:
"I wish I still had the SMSes from Ranjeni to a friend whose family she wanted to destroy. She was a new mother & she bombarded her with nasty SMSes about her man. The audacity of this woman is beyond beyond."
Briefly.co.za reported that Munusamy had been placed on special leave following allegations that her car had been paid off by a Crime Intelligence slush fund meant to finance covert operations.
Munusamy denied the allegations, vowing to have her say in the debacle at the State Capture Inquiry.
More recently, the same former senior crime intelligence officer had testified how he met the Tiso Blackstar journalist three times, with the slush fund forking over the bill for an extensive revamp of her vehicle.
Khoabane herself is also facing unflattering allegations at the Zondo Commission, with former BOSASA executive Angelo Agrizzi claiming that she had taken part in corrupt activities.
