'Dipuo Letsatsi-Duba was never an employee of the state security agency'
According to the Sunday Independent, State Security Minister Dipuo Letsatsi-Duba allegedly lived a double life as a Limpopo MEC and a paid spy for more than 10 years.
The paper reports that her spy job earned her millions of rand which she never declared to Parliament.
To discuss these allegations, Bongani Bingwa speaks to the minister's legal advisor Advocate Mahlodi Muofhe.
These allegations are serious, and what makes them more dangerous is the fact that they are based on unnamed sources, and that is very difficult to verify who is saying what except that the publication can best explain.Advocate Mahlodi Muofhe, Dipuo Letsatsi-Duba's legal advisor
Let me put it as a fact, the minister was never an employee of the state security agency.Advocate Mahlodi Muofhe, Dipuo Letsatsi-Duba's legal advisor
He says questions were sent the minister at a hectic time when she was campaigning for the elections, and that is why she didn't respond to them.
Muofhe is adamant that this story was not verified and says Letsatsi-Duba never worked for the state security agency.
The paper also reported that the minister bought cars with money she had made as a spy. Muofhe had this to say about that:
You can go to the agency. The agency told me that they don't have any record of those cars. What the minister has, I would imagine, they would be her own issues.Advocate Mahlodi Muofhe, Dipuo Letsatsi-Duba's legal advisor
