Norma Mngoma has spilled the beans about Malusi Gigaba’s Gupta Connection. In an interview with eNCA on Thursday, Mngoma said that Gigaba received money and gifts from the Gupta family in exchange for him doing favors for them, especially while he was public enterprises minister, she said.
She said her husband, with who she is in the middle of divorce proceedings with, often visited the Saxonwold mansion where the Guptas lived and said on a few occasions, the Guptas came to their Pretoria home.
“We would visit and sometimes we get gifts, I didn’t know what for,”.
“They used to give him a lot of money and he would say I do favors for the Guptas,” said Mngoma.
Mngoma said the Guptas funded her wedding, her honeymoon, and renovations of a Gigaba property. She said the money received from the family was also used to clear Gigaba’s sisters’ R850 000 debt.
“He is the one that would answer better,” she said.
She said she would be willing to testify at the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture if she was called upon.
