Gigaba quits as an MP

Disgraced former Minister of Home Affairs Malusi Gigaba has resigned as a Member of Parliament, Parliament spokesperson Moloto Mothapo confirmed in a statement on Thursday morning.

This follows his resignation as a Minister of Home Affairs on Tuesday supposedly to mounting pressure from opposition’s parties, the findings by Public Protector’s report that Gigaba violated the constitution and the executive member’s ethics code when he lied under oath allowing Oppenheimer family to use a private terminal at OR Tambo International Airport

Gigaba stated in his letter of resignation he was stepping aside for the sake of our country and the movement to which he belongs, saying he was relieving the President from undue pressure.
