Minister in the Presidency Jeff Radebe has reportedly apologised unreservedly for exchanging explicit text and email communication with 29-year-old Union Buildings staffer Siyasanga Mbambani.

The senior minister’s spokesperson, Phillip Musekwa, said he “deeply regrets that the exchanges took place in the first place” and would like to apologise to the country‚ Mbambani‚ her family, his own wife and children, TimesLIVE reports.

The Sunday Times reported at the weekend, Radebe, 65, had sent improper messages to the presidential photographer from the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) requesting pictures of her private parts.

Musekwa said Radebe admitted the incident and said it was poor judgment on his part.

“He is worried about the welfare of the woman who is implicated. She will take the social media pressure of what is now out there,” he said.
