Joyce Omphemetse Molamu, the ex-mistress to the South African Minister of Sport and Recreation Fikile Mbalula had her nudes leaked this week.
In some of the images, Molamu and her best friend, Shirley Langa, are seen showing off their privates while holding glasses of champagne in a bedroom. In another snap, Molamu is naked and taking selfies in the shower.
On how the nudes got leaked, Molamu claimed her ex-boyfriend Mandla Makhubedu – who just got out of prison – was responsible for stealing the pictures from her phone.
She stated angrily, “The content on my phone is private and confidential. He asked to use my phone. That could have been when he sent himself the pictures.”
Speaking to City Press, Makhubedu admitted knowledge of the images though he insisted he didn’t leak them.
“My life is very sensitive. I just came out of jail. Why would I leak pictures when I know I’m featured in one of the pictures?” Makhubedu asked, “I’m a family man. I don’t deserve this.”
Molamu who is in her third year studying law said the pictures were taken five years ago.
She said, “We were just having fun. How people have their private fun is their own business. The problem is when their private fun comes out in the public domain.”
“For the past five years, I’ve been living a clean life and I’m about to finish my studies. Then this happens.”
Joyce intends to press charges against her ex-boyfriend, Makhubedu.
In 2011, a sex scandal story involving Sports Minister Fikile Mbalula, 40, and model Joyce Omphemetse Molamu, 23, broke. They had a two-night fling, during which his condom burst, leading to an alleged pregnancy.
SowetanLive reported, Mbalula said he gave Molamu R10000 for an abortion, but she later wanted R40000 and threatened to go public if he did not pay up.
He later apologized to the nation and his wife.
