Two South African Cabinet Ministers in Love Triangle - Tabloid

The South African National Editors' Forum says it is "shocked" by Mineral Resources Minister Gwede Mantashe's "brazen" reported admission to the tabloid Sunday World newspaper that he paid two of its journalists R70 000 to make a story about his sex life disappear. The minister has denied the claims.
