'Do the honourable thing if you have any honour left in your bones'

Embattled Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba has attributed his recent political setbacks to sinister forces aimed at destroying his name and his political career.

The minister says he has been demonised and is being portrayed as public enemy number one.

Breakfast Show Host Bongani Bingwa says the phrase used by axed Sars Commissioner Tom Moyane that he is not the devil incarnate, sounds very much what Gigaba is saying as well.

It kind of sounds the same, does it not, that he is being demonised. It is the same sense of hyperbole and the same sense of drama.

Bingwa says the judgement found that he lied under oath and there are a number of issues that were raised.

One of the things that came out of that judgement is that the judge ruled in one part of the judgement and says, the minister in his own handwriting was talking about approval we had granted was suspended until further notice.

Now you have to ask the question if he was suspending an approval, that would now be given into the future, what was he suspending because he had already given it. Remember his whole explanation around this whole thing was that he had never given the approval but at the same time in his own handwriting he wrote they had suspended it.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show Host

Bingwa asks how can one can suspend something that you have never instructed to go ahead in the first place.

He adds that when the minister says there is a campaign against him to destroy him and demonise him, the public is not buying it.

And you have been given the opportunity to answer and all you have to do now is do the honourable thing, that is if you have any honour left in your bones.
