Former minister Malusi Gigaba’s wife allegedly moered jhim and trashed his Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon because his jolmeit is pregnant - with twins.
Norma Gigaba, who spent the weekend in jail, will appear before a magistrate today to face charges of malicious damage to property, domestic violence, crimen injuria and assault.
Over the years, their marriage has been marred by cheating scandals.
Gigaba, the former finance and home affairs minister, had been accused of being in a relationship with Norma, 40, while married to his first wife.
It is now alleged that the 48-year-old has a girlfriend, who is currently pregnant with twins.
A video circulated on social media showing a badly damaged Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon, worth more than R3 million, and believed to belong to the power couple.
However, in one unauthenticated voice note, the speaker claimed the larney car belongs to the former minister’s friend, and Norma damaged it out of spite because she believed the friend was the jolmeit.
Further claims in the recording suggest Gigaba called the police on his wife and her laptops and cellphones were confiscated.
It said Malusi’s friend opened a case against Norma.
The speaker also said that the pair had been sleeping in separate bedrooms for a while and are on the rocks, but Norma did not want to leave without Malusi’s pension money.
In November 2018, Gigaba resigned as both Member of Parliament and Cabinet Minister when found to have breached the executive ethics code after a video of him masturbating circulated on social media.
Malusi’s ex-wife Thabong simply called the scandal “karma”.
She took to Instagram and captioned a photo of herself saying: “Karma has no menu, you get served what you deserve.”
