South Africans have grown used to gobsmacking details coming out of the Zondo Commission into state capture – but one woman’s testimony really had jaws hanging on the floor. Norma Mngoma, dressed to the nines, hair perfect, long nails gleaming, earrings in place, dropped bombshell after bombshell.

Over the course of six gruelling hours, she told in shocking detail how her estranged husband Malusi Gigaba, the former minsters of finance and home affairs, was wooed by the Gupta brothers who lavished him with expensive cars, gold jewellery and bags of money.Once her testimony was done last month, Norma – who now goes by her maiden name – went away for a few days to get over the stress of it all.

But she’s back now and she’s ready to spill a few more beans.After everything that’s happened, you’d expect her to avoid her estranged husband like the plague. But Norma and Malusi are still living under the same roof – and while things are tense, they’re doing it for the kids.
