South Africa's Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba is currently hot after his adult video leaked online.
Mr. Gigaba, who is a well-known politician in South Africa took to social media to reveal how the said video got leaked.
According to him, the video was stolen from his cellphone and that he became aware of this just before his appointment as finance minister in March, 2017.
However, in a series of tweets, Gigaba said the tape was stolen during a phone hacking incident in 2016 or 2017, and that its content was only meant to be viewed by his wife and himself.
He also added that the video circulating in political circles has been used to blackmail and extortion attempts against him.
His spokesman, Vuyo Mkhize, told public broadcaster SABC that 10m rand ($690,000, £540,000) had been demanded.
"The state security agency was behind the illegal interception of the minister's communication/retrieval of the video from his phone," he tweeted.
This is not the first time Mr Gigaba's sex life has filled South African newspapers. Times Live reminds its readers that his wife had a public spat with his mistress in 2015.
