Celebrity doctor, Mmereka Ntshani, has threatened to take legal action against Home Affairs Minister, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, over alleged defamatory statements.
“One of the passports expired on July 25 2012. It beats us why she was carrying an expired passport because it has no use, it can’t be used at any border because passports are not only controlled by us. They get used into many countries,” said Motsoaledi.
“Therefore, should no response be received as aforementioned, our client will issue will issue a notice in terms of Section 3(1) of Act 40 of 2002 of her intention to institute legal proceedings against you for damages she has sustained as a direct result of your defamatory statements and utterances.”
