Norma Gigaba Hired Assassins To Kill Malusi. There is more to the Norma Gigaba story than what is currently in the public domain, according to the Hawks.
It’s reported that former Cabinet Minister Malusi Gigaba had in May opened a case after he was tipped-off that an alleged hit on his life was in the pipeline.Norma Gigaba Hired Assassins To Kill Malusi.
On Friday, his wife was dramatically arrested and held in a Pretoria jail cell.
She’s been charged with assault and malicious damage to property.
Responding to eNCA’s inquiries about why the priority investigations unit, and not the police, got involved in the case, Hawks spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi said there was more to the story than what’s been reported.
He would not elaborate.
“In this case, we were briefed or informed of a very serious matter which necessitated us to look into it and to investigate it as well.”
“It is not something very light, it is a very serious matter that we are dealing with. Unfortunately, we cannot get into those details. This is just one part of the investigations that we are dealing with,” he said.
Sunday World reports that the wife of Malusi Gigaba, Noma, hired assassins to kill Malusi in June.
The Hawks took Noma’s phones and other devices and downloaded information that they used to investigate her.
Noma is also facing two further charges:
- The first one is for damaging Siyaya Peterson’s Mercedes Benz which was parked in Malusi’s garage.
- The second for phoning Peterson and telling him he had HIV from sleeping around with cougurs.
Norma Gigaba has been released on bail.
She is expected to appear in the Hatfield Magistrate court for a bail application on Monday.
