EWN reporter Veronica Mokhoali says Wise 4 Africa supports Norma amid malicious damage to property and crimen injuria charges.
Norma Gigaba, the wife of former cabinet minister Malusi Gigaba, was released from the holding cells of Brooklyn police station on Saturday,1 August 2020 after she had been arrested by the Hawks on charges of malicious damage to property and crimen injuria.
EWN reporter Veronica Mokhoali says Norma Gigaba’s lawyers, who include attorney Victor Nkhwashu, advocates Dali Mpofu and Tembeka Ngcukaitobi, said they would not be able to give comment on the situation as they are still waiting for the Hawks to respond to their involvement in the arrest of their client.
I think that was everybody’s question: Why the hawks and is there any actual truth to these allegations?Veronica Mokhoali, EWN Reporter
Mokhoali says Gigaba has support from a women advocacy group called “Wise 4 Africa”, who have thrown their weight behind the former finance minister’s wife and are planning to place an application when Gigaba’s legal team goes to the high court to challenge the legality of the Hawks involvement in her arrest.
