…claims they are lovers


Zanele Sifuba, the Speaker of South Africa’s African National Congress (ANC) Free State legislature has accused one of the governors in South-South Nigeria of leaking her sex tape.

Sifuba topped the trends list in South Africa after she was captured in the sex tape.

Many South Africans, groups and parties have sympathised with her and condemned the circulation of her nude images and sex tape, including Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Provincial Secretary Malefane Bosanku Msimanga. Some have expressed disappointment and disgust over the clip.

The exploded ticking-time bomb scandal apparently started with the leakage of screenshots from the actual video.

It was learnt that the nudes started making the rounds on Monday, 31 October.

The Free State Legislature quickly responded by ordering an investigation into the Speaker’s sex scandal.

“The Legislature will establish investigations into this Gender-based violence. This is harassment and whoever shared this video must face the law. This is an insult to elderly women.”

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) Provincial Secretary Malefane Bosanku Msimanga and African National Congress Youth League (ANCYL) Regional Chairperson Edgar Legoale condemned the ‘insensitive’ circulation of nude images of what appears to be those of the Speaker of Free State legislature.

The parties said that the person responsible for the circulation of the images should be arrested, charged and sentenced to a minimum of 15 years of jail term.

Taking to Facebook on Thursday, Sifuba identified the Niger Delta governor as the Nigerian man who leaked the video.

She described the Nigerian politician as her lover whom she trusted.

“This is the picture of the man who leaked our video. He is my lover whom I trusted. A Nigerian Official, ” she said, posting the picture of the governor alongside.

“I trusted him with my life, but he betrayed me. Please share for the whole world to know the kind of man he is.”

Meanwhile, Sifuba has reportedly opened a civil claim case after the explicit sex tape was leaked.

Initial reports said the tape was leaked by a young man who reportedly tried to extort R300 000 from Sifuba, and when she did not pay, the video was released.

Meanwhile, the African National Congress (ANC) Caucus in Free State has expressed confidence in Sifuba and declared its support for her amid the violation of her privacy.
