[LISTEN] I won't keep shut on Booysen assassination plot - Dianne Kohler-Barnard

Democratic Alliance (DA) MP Dianne Kohler-Barnard says she will not keep her 'little' mouth shut about the assassination plot against former KwaZulu-Natal Hawks boss Johan Booysen.

This despite Kohler-Barnard admitting she does not have evidence to back the claims.

The member of parliament said in a police ministry's budget debate on Tuesday that former president Jacob Zuma and other top ANC politicians had taken out a hit on Booysen.

I'm not one who is going to sit quite at home; knit a jersey and allow someone like Booysen to be assassinated and keep my little mouth shut because someone says I might be in trouble.

I do know that general Booysen now drives around with a firearm between his knees. He is taking this very seriously.

Kohler-Barnard adds that she has nothing in writing to back her claims and evidence because she is not a police officer. She insists that she has, however, been informed.
