Social media users made claims that the surgery cost upwards of R100,000 and that Manketsi allegedly asked Agri Delight to pay for it.

Speaking to Dailysun.co.za, she said:

But it was from my own pocket back in 2014 when I was still MEC for local government. These are just malicious reports and personal attacks.
