The DA said it will request that the Ministers in the Justice, Crime Prevention and Security Cluster urgently brief the Joint Standing Committee on Intelligence on the investigation into the so-called “White Widow”, Samantha Lewthwaite.

This follows media reports on Sunday that South Africa was placed on a high security alert last Sunday, after Lewthwaite was allegedly seen conducting surveillance of embassies in Pretoria, are cause for serious concern.

DA Shadow Minister of State Security Dirk Stubbe said Ministers Nathi Mthethwa, Siyabonga Cwele and Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula must brief the JSCI to reassure Parliament that everything is being done to protect South Africa from terror attacks.

Stubbe also said we need to be sure that South Africa is safe and that there were no intelligence failures in respect of Lewthwaite.

“We cannot sit back and allow South Africa to become a “destination of choice” for terrorists. South Africans must be assured that their public representatives are doing everything possible to ensure South Africa's security” added Stubbe.
