It has been alleged that the EFF was responsible for the  leaked  sex video of Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba,which has now gone viral, setting a divergent tone in social discussions and commentaries.

Friends sympathetic to the minister alleged on twitter the real source of the leak.

But the EFF has stoutly denied involvement, saying anyone with evidence must come forward and prove the party was behind the leak.

Gigaba’s spokesperson Vuyo Mkhize tweeted yesterday: “The @mgigaba video was leaked by an opposition leader who obtained it from an MP of his party from Umzimkhulu who, in turn, obtained it from a guy who was previously implicated in the failed attempt to blackmail the minister all social media rumours to the contrary are false.”

On Sunday, Gigaba, on Twitter, publicly apologised to the nation for the video, which he said was shot in 2016. He also turned to Twitter to apologise to his family and the nation for the embarrassing video.

Mkhize, who confirmed posting the tweet, did not name the MP, the leader of the opposition party or the party they belong to. He said he would comment further only if there were developments.
