- While the nation digests some unwarranted information on two minister's love lives, EFF spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has weighed in on the story
- Ndlozi pointed out Gwede Mantashe's revelation that he had allegedly bribed the journalists who penned the article
- The EFF politician has called on the Mineral Resources minister to hand himself over and reveal the names of those he paid
Mbuyiseni Ndlozi wants Gwede Mantashe to hand himself to authorities over the information he dished out in response to his 'slay queen' scandal.
Briefly.co.za reported that a woman claiming to have had relations with both Mantashe and Minister Tito Mboweni had caused some waves in Mzansi.
In response to the report, Ndlozi pointed out that the politician had implicated himself in bribery:
"Gwede Mantashe just admitted to bribery of Sunday World journalists not to publish his “Tiger” story. I really don’t care much on the private life of the man. What should concern us is the bribery of journalists. He must hand himself to the police & release the names!"
Sunday World, who had released the expose, had reported that Mantashe had claimed to have paid journalists not to release the article:
"Two journalists from your publication called me for the same story. So, you are the third person to call me for the same story, do you also want money?"
Mantashe, who is also married, is adamant that he had paid the journalists who had sought out comment:
"I begged them not to write the story, I paid two journalists at your publication. I will not reveal their names, you can ask amongst your colleagues."
