- Former South African Minister Malusi Gigaba has finally shared his thoughts on the outcome of his former wife, Norma Gigaba's court case victory
- Heading to Twitter, Gigaba wrote that Norma will always be the mother of his children which he respects, and that is why he has been quiet about it
- Last week Norma ,Gigaba who now goes by Mngoma, won the case against the Hawks after the judge found that her arrest had been unlawful
Former Minister Malusi Gigaba has finally said something about his ex-wife and mother to his children, Norma Gigaba who now goes by Norma Mngoma, and her victory in court against the Hawks last week.
In a tweet, Gigaba said that he had been quiet about the case and its outcome because Norma is the mother of his children. He also distanced himself from the case, saying that he was not a "party" to it.
"I’m quiet because, way after our divorce, my wife will still remain the mother of our two boys. And, besides, I was never a party to the case which gave rise to this finding against me (it’s akin to a judge convicting someone who was never charged and never appeared before him)," he wrote.
Locals had a lot to say about his statement. Read a few of their comments below:
"You used your influence to have the mother of your children arrested and jailed by the Hawks. Explain how this domestic quarrel became a Hawks matter."
"Hawks have never been involved in a domestic spat.. SAPS ukhona. Obvious abuse of power."
"I dunno who has the mother of his children so publicly arrested and humiliated but hey."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that The Gauteng High Court in Pretoria ruled on Thursday that the warrant of arrest for Norma Gigaba and its subsequent execution was unlawful. Handing down the ruling Judge Cassim Sardiwalla granted Norma Gigaba's application on an urgent basis, labeling the decision to apply for the warrant of arrest as unlawful.
The court has also ordered that the confiscation of her information and devices as was unlawful, ordering the Hawks to restore all information illegally removed from the devices.
Monday saw the Public Protector issuing a number of reports including the one into the former Home Affairs Minister. Allegations of wrongdoing were found to be lacking any substance by the advocate, something Gigaba has welcomed.
