Norma Mngoma warned against contacting witnesses in case against Malusi Gigaba
Norma Mngoma's court case has been postponed till next year February as officials still need to do more investigation into her case.
Mngoma was charged with crimen injuria and malicious damage to property for allegedly damaging a luxury vehicle belonging to her husband’s friend.
EWN reporter Kgomotso Modise told The Midday Report that in the beginning there was confusion as to which case would be heard between the crimen injuria case and her taking the matter of being arrested by the Hawks to the Pretoria High Court.
The matter that is being heard today is that of crimen injuria case and malicious to damage on the property which is the initial case for which she had been arrested for.Kgomotso Modise, Reporter - EWN
The estranged wife of former Cabinet minister Malusi Gigaba was arrested by the Hawks in July and spent a night in the police holding cells in Brooklyn.
She took the matter to the Pretoria High Court to challenge the validity of her arrest. She argues she was arrested by the Hawks and says she does not understand how that became the case because of the type of crime she been accused of.Kgomotso Modise, Reporter - EWN
Modise says the court heard that Mngoma was in contact with the state witnesses and she was given a stern warning to stop and reminded that if she does it again she would be in contempt of the court order.
