Durban – If Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba thought he had a good week at the World Economic Forum on Africa hosted in Durban last week, it would certainly seem short-lived, as an interview by his wife Norma has injected a dash of venom into US based fashionista Buhle Mkhize's skin.

Mhkize, a woman who Gigaba had allegedly cheated with, appeared to have created a new Twitter account on Tuesday to hit back at Norma.

Mhkize appeared aggrieved that the wife of the Finance Minister had seemingly referred or implied she was a prostitute in an interview with eNCA at the weekend.

Mkhize dismissed those on social media who said she was speaking out because she was angry that Gigaba had chosen Norma over her. She suggested Norma, would rather die than leave Gigaba.

Mkhize also questioned if Norma was an "IT specialist", tweeting that the former Minister of Home Affairs had once told her that she in fact had no degree and suggested she had only certificate studies in IT.

And according to Mkhize, Gigaba can forget about his chances of becoming president with Norma at her side.
