Mbalula takes on Gordhan as he accuses him of leaking sensitive information

A tense battle of the ministers has taken center stage after Fikile Mbalula accused Pravin Gordhan of leaking sensitive information. 

This revelation comes after Mbalula was sensationally kicked out of a meeting by President Cyril Ramaphosa. 

The story made national headlines and Mbalula is now blaming Gordhan for leaking the information. 

Mbalula also accused Phumla Williams, CEO of the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS), of failing to defend him from “attacks” by Gordhan and the media, according to sources.

This latest sensation was published in the front page of The Star newspaper and it is set to get people talking. 

It is reported that a fuming Mbalula asked Minister in the Presidency Mondli Gungubele and Williams, who had ignored Sunday Independent questions, to “clarify” the matter.

“After reading the newspaper on Sunday and (saw) the story was damaging to him since it was the trending story and he felt attacked by Pravin and Piet (Rampedi)” one source said.

“He told Phumla and Mondli that they must clarify the issue of leaking of the incident to the press.”

Mbalula took many by surprise when he used the SA National Roads Agency (Sanral) on Monday to lambaste unnamed people who leaked details of confidential Cabinet meetings.
