- Norma Mngoma recently accused her former husband, Malusi Gigaba, of conspiring with the Hawks
- According to Mngoma, Gigaba employed the Hawks to remove photos of Gigaba with the Guptas from her cellphone
- Locals have shared various interesting thoughts about Mngoma's accusations online
Norma Mngoma, formerly known as Norma Gigaba, the wife of South African politician, Malusi Gigaba, recently levelled very shocking allegations against both her estranged ex-husband and the Hawks.
According to Mngoma, her husband used the Hawks to get rid of crucial evidence in the form of photos of himself and the Guptas, who he had previously denied having any illicit involvement following an inquiry by the State Capture.
Social media users have shared various reactions to Mngoma's allegations. Only a few people believed that she was speaking from a place of truth, while many others accused her of being bitter and having had no evidence to begin with. Read a few of their comments below:
"Was she going to the Guptas to gather evidence or she was accompanying her husband? And we must trust this thing when she said she was abused by the guy, how can you be a good wife whereas you go around gathering incriminating evidence about ur husband? Zondo will listen le yena."
"Isn't Norma an IT specialist? Surely she understands the use and benefit of cloud backup services."
"This must be a joke. Any decent forensic investigation intern with an online course can recover “deleted” files. Please. Norma and ST must take themselves seriously. This is just nonsense"
"No, she had no Gupta-related evidence from the first place."
Briefly.co.za previously reported that Norma Mngoma has confirmed that she will be giving evidence before the State Capture Commission about the visits her estranged husband Malusi Gigaba had with the Gupta family while he was the finance minister.
Mngoma was previously arrested by the Hawks and revealed that information removed from her communications devices during her arrest was related to the visits. Just a month ago a judge ruled that the Hawks had unlawfully arrested Mngoma and acted with malice.
The judge stated that the Hawks seemed to have been motivated by Gigaba's 'abuse of power'. TimesLIVE reported that the judge ordered that Mngoma's confiscated devices and the information that was downloaded from the devices be returned. Mngoma has urgently requested the court to order that her devices be returned.
