They are reportedly happy together and enjoy being around each other. Despite their efforts to keep their marriage secret, Busisiwe Mkhwebane and David Skosana have been making the news headlines since the former’s Section 194 inquiry kicked off in mid-2022 when she got suspended as the Public Protector Advocate. They have been working together on the case, which has subjected the family to agony multiple times.
In May 2023, Skosana opened a case of extortion against Richard Dyantyi, who chairs the Section 194 inquiry, ANC Chief Whip Pemmy Majodina, and the late Tina Joemat-Pettersson. In his statement, he claimed he was asked by Tina to pay R600,000 (R200,000 each to the three MPs) to manipulate the parliamentary inquiry in his wife’s favor.
He moved on to release evidence that supported his extortion claims, and it has brought a new development to the inquiry. With David showing his wife unwavering support throughout the trial, Busisiwe Mkhwebane is said to be happy at home despite her career being on the line.
