Gigaba resigns as Home Affairs Minister

South African Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba pressured to quit after a court found he had lied under oath as well as a video of him circulated on social media.

“The President has accepted the Minister’s resignation and expressed his appreciation for Minister Gigaba’s longstanding service to the government and people of South Africa,” the presidency said.

‘‘Minister Gigaba indicated in his letter of resignation that he was stepping aside for the sake of our country and the movement to which he belongs. And further to relieve the president from undue pressure and allow him to focus on improving the lives of the people of SA and for him to do the best he can to serve the country and save it from this economic meltdown.’’
