The story: The former wife of Malusi Gigaba, Norma Mngoma, says she feels vindicated after a court found she had been unlawfully arrested in 2020.

The details: Mngoma was charged with assault and malicious damage to property related to an incident where she allegedly trashed an expensive Mercedes Benz during a dispute with Gigaba. The court handed down its verdict on Thursday.

The background: Mngoma and Gigaba have been at each other publicly in recent times. She has begun using her maiden name, but it is not yet clear whether they have been officially separated or divorced.
