She is facing charges of malicious damage to property and crimen injuria.

She was arrested in July by the Hawks regarding claims that she had damaged an expensive German four by four vehicle – that reportedly belonged to a friend of her husband.

In August Noma Gigaba’s lawyer, Victor Nkhwashu, said the Hawks had seized his client’s devices as part of a criminal investigation into allegations that she had sent insulting text messages to an unidentified man.
