The Police have confirmed that National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega, was indeed the one who sent an SMS message to senior DA MP Dianne Kohler Barnard.

The message left tongues wagging after it was believed to have racial connotations, sparking discomfort even among ANC MPs.

It reads:” "I am black, proud, and capable and get it clear you can take nothing from me, eat your heart out. I am not made by you and cannot be undone by you. Riah Phiyega”

National Police spokesman Solomon Makgale denied that the message was intended as a threat to Kohler Barnard.
