Makhosi Khoza responds to Fikile Mbalula's Facebook comments about death threats

Police Minister Fikile Mbalula says that while he takes death threats against ANC members of Parliament seriously, Dr Makhosi Khoza refuses to deal with his office and is only addressing the matter through Facebook.

On Wednesday night Khoza responded to this on Facebook, saying that South African Police Service (SAPS) never took her death threats seriously. She claims that despite opening two cases in Limpopo in March 2017 and the other in Hillcrest in April 2017, SAPS failed to provide protection for her.

Instead, Khoza says that ANC Chief Whip's office accused her of extreme-ill discipline after she challenged Mbalula's statements at the 2017 ANC Policy Conference.
