Buhle Mkhize Husband

News of the then home affairs minister’s extramarital affair with Mkhize was first flung in the spotlight in 2015 when Mkhize and Mrs Gigaba, known affectionately as Mrs Gigabyte, had it out on social media with Mrs Gigabyte calling Mkhize a prostitute.

She accused Mkhize of blackmailing her family and demanding money from them in exchange for her silence.

According to Mkhize, an arrangement was made in co-operation with SA Intelligence to have R500,000 given to her in order for her to keep her mouth shut about the affair.

She claimed the deal fell through after Noma began attacking her on social media.

In an open letter penned as an attempt to clear her name, Mkhize alleged Gigaba lied about seeing her behind his wife’s back, despite being in contact with her in the days leading up to his wedding in August 2014.
