Malusi Gigaba’s spokesperson: sex tape was leaked by ‘an opposition leader’

Malusi Gigaba’s spokesperson Vuyo Mkhize has confirmed that the sex tape which sent social media into a frenzy on Sunday was “leaked by an opposition leader”.

Mkhize, who has been asked by Gigaba to handle queries regarding the now infamous video, published the statement to Twitter on Monday morning, just a few hours after Gigaba himself issued a national apology.

“The @mgigaba video was leaked by an opposition leader who obtained it from an mp of his party from umzimkhulu who, in turn, obtained it from a guy who was previously implicated in the failed attempt to blackmail the minister… all social media rumours to the contrary are false!” Mkhize tweeted.

It was lated retweeted by Malusi Gigaba himself.

The spokesperson had previously stated that the “the state security agency was behind the illegal interception of the minister’s communication/retrieval of the video from his phone”.

Mkhize has not made the opposition party leader’s name public.
