Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba has apologised on social media for a video containing material of a s-e-xual nature meant to be only seen by him and his wife is being used to blackmail him.
Gigaba says the video is at the centre of a number of blackmail and extortion attempts, dating back to the period immediately following his appointment as finance minister in March last year.
Head of PR firm Kapital Mindz, Vuyo Mkhize confirmed the sex tape. However, he said the video did not involve Gigaba and his wife.
“The video, although I am not at liberty to go into the details of what it contains, it does not contain footage o the minister and his wife. It’s only the minister, it’s a video he created for transmission to his wife.”
The video is just 14 seconds starring Minister Gigaba playing with his manhood. A lot of people have been looking for this video and we have it.
Gigaba tweeted apologising “I take this opportunity to publicly apologise, in advance, to the rest of my family – especially my kids, my mom and my in-laws – and the South African public for the pain and embarrassment the likely wider distribution of this private material will cause”.
