Gigaba's former mistress takes on his wife in social media storm

Cape Town - A storm has erupted on social media on an account allegedly belonging to Buhle Mkhize against Norma Gigaba, wife of Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba.

Mkhize had an affair with Malusi Gigaba in the past, and a previous social media spat between the two carried on for months in 2015 and 2016.

On Twitter, socialite Mkhize appeared to threaten the Gigabas, indicating that she has a recording on tape that could embarrass the minister. By late afternoon, the angry tweets had gone viral.

Norma Gigaba had not yet responded to the tweets.

"Wena STOP yourself or the Mauritius trip and somewill come to light.Our June 2 three way conversation is still safely on tape (sic)," she tweeted.

In an interview with eNCA, Norma said she had dealt with the affair Malusi had with Mkhize, and that they had reconciled.
