South African mines minister Gwede Mantashe reportedly paid journalists to dissuade them from publishing an article about her relationship with a 26-year-old call girl.
A revelation that is the oil patch in the fight against corruption launched by President Cyril Ramaphosa.
According to the Sunday World newspaper, mines minister Gwede Mantashe reportedly paid $ 4,800 to 2 journalists from this body to bury revelations about her extra-marital affairs with a 26-year-old call girl he shared with the Budget Minister Tito Mboweni, another close to the head of state.
The reputation of the two ministers takes a hit. But it is especially the corruption of journalists who scandalize the South Africans.
