[LISTEN] It wasn't me: Matuba says gun pic was sent to journo by unknown person

Asked whether she sent the picture, ANCWL secretary general Meokgo Matuba said: “Actually no, I didn’t send a gun to Qaanitah. If it’s her take that I sent the gun to intimidate her, my sincere apologies.”

JOHANNESBURG - The African National Congress Women’s League (ANCWL) secretary general Meokgo Matuba says a photo of a gun sent from her phone to a Sunday Times journalist was not sent by her.

Matuba has spoken exclusively to Eyewitness News about suggestions that she tried to intimidate Qaanitah Hunter who reported on a meeting she attended with former President Jacob Zuma, secretary general Ace Magashule and former North West Premier Supra Mahumapelo.

When Hunter asked Matuba to confirm whether she was in a meeting with Zuma, she denied it and later sent the reporter a picture of a gun.

Asked whether she sent the picture, Matuba said: “Actually no, I didn’t send a gun to Qaanitah. If it’s her take that I sent the gun to intimidate her, my sincere apologies.”
