[LISTEN] DA's Mazzone describes her office and car break-ins and being followed

Democratic Alliance (DA) Shadow Minister for Public Enterprise Natasha Mazzone says despite the alleged intimidation of herself and other members of the Public Enterprises Portfolio Committee she is even more determined to fight state capture.

Expressing her views during a state capture debate in Parliament on Tuesday, Mazzone described the abuse of state resources as a 'monster' and urged South African's to continue to hold executives to account.

Earlier this week Mazzone spoke out about a series of strange occurrences that began after she and other members of the Public Enterprises Portfolio Committee began the Eskom inquiry.

I had my office broken into and all my files in my drawers were gone through, I was followed in Pretoria near my home, my car broken into, a bizarre case of them moving my car about 3 metres forward...

Natasha Mazzone, DA Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises

We expected some kind of intimidation, we are dealing with it internally. My party is dealing with it as well.

Natasha Mazzone, DA Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises

She says she is not backing down.

I am not backing down, more determined than ever and calling on all South Africans to join me in this fight.

Natasha Mazzone, DA Shadow Minister of Public Enterprises

But like I said, wrong person to try and intimidate.
