Mngoma was arrested in July last year on charges of malicious damage to property and crimen injuria, this after she had damaged a Mercedes-Benz G63 AMG which purportedly belonged to Gigaba's friend using a vegetable slicer.

In her urgent application in which she is represented by the distinguishably competent Advocate Dali Mpofu SC, she argued that her Hawks arrest was a scheme orchestrated by her ex-husband to bully, intimidate and to ultimately acquire information from her devices unlawfully. She indicated that her arrest had no basis in law.

Judge Cassin of the Pretoria High Court Sardiwalla ruled that, "having considered the facts of this matter and arguments, the application by Ms Mngoma is granted on an urgent basis," he ruled.

"The arrest was unlawful respondent's ordered to restore all information removed," he continued.

The Court also granted punitive costs against the Hawks for their unbecoming conduct, and it found the behavior of the Minister of Police, who was also a respondent 'reprehensible'.

Meanwhile, Mngoma is due back in court on Friday, this is where the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) will have to decide whether to forge ahead with the malicious damage to property case against her.

What do you make of this judgement, will it have dire consequences for Malusi Gibaba?
