South Africa’s security services have been accused of hacking a politician’s phone after a sex tape emerged.

The 13-second video of Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba masturbating on his own was widely circulated.

His spokesman accused security services of stealing the video from his phone and he accused an opposition politician of leaking it.

The spokesman said that the minister had started getting blackmail threats last year.

The video is being shared widely on WhatsApp among South Africans, the BBC’s Milton Nkosi reports.

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.
