Norma Mngoma Gigaba, the wife of former finance minister Malusi Gigaba, will spend the weekend behind bars, so says the Hawks. The 40-year-old woman was arrested by members of the Hawks at her Pretoria home at about 6pm on Friday night.
Sources close to the Gigaba family told Independent Media earlier on Friday that the cause was linked to the alleged damage of a Mercedes Benz G-Wagon, which is believed to be owned by the former minister.
Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi told IOL that the woman had been charged with malicious damage to property and assault.
He said more charges could be added and “there was more to the case than meets the eye”.
“This is a Hawks matter because there is more to it than people think, but we will not ventilate that at this stage.
“This matter was referred to us and there has been an investigation. This is only one part of the investigation, there are other serious matters to the investigation,” he said.
A video of what is alleged to be the politician’s car is making the rounds on social media. The G Wagon has been keyed, vandalised and the words “cheater” are written all over it. Rumour has it that the former minister is cheating again and his wife has had enough.

A woman only known as Sibongile described the situation as ‘extremely tense’. It is reported that a war of words has broken out between the police and a friend of Mngoma, believed to be a prosecutor.
