Every once in a while, you miss an entire social media conversation and then you see something trending and wonder why and that's exactly what happened with Norma Gigaba...
The IT specialist and philanthropist sat down for an interview with Ayanda Allie-Payne a while ago and it was aired on Sunday before it went on to blow up on social media and trend for the past few hours.
In addition to trying to introduce people to a side of her they never knew, Mrs. Gigaba chronicled what happened on the night that her husband found out that he had been appointed to replace Pravin Gordhan as South Africa's finance minister.
But it was what she said about the rand rebounding that got her trolled for her reaction.

No wonder we have been having security issues with South African passports. Norma Gigaba aka Mrs Gigabyte is the one making them— Sibonakaliso Mhlongo (@SMhlongoEFF) May 8, 2017
Norma also revealed that she was her own woman (who already went by the moniker Ms. Gigabyte) long before she met Malusi. She says she is often bothered by the idea that people think that she and her husband live a lavish lifestyle with funds gotten through illicit means but she says that is not the case.
She also addressed the rumors surrounding her husband's affair with socialite, Buhle Mkhize as well as how she responded to the situation. We must admit, it was a bit hard to follow the story as Mrs. Gigaba didn't complete a lot of her sentences/thoughts and the metaphors and idioms she chose went over our heads...
Wow guys, what are your thoughts?
Norma Gigaba is what Babes Wodumo would have been if we allowed her to speak often.— Zac IssaSavage🐦 (@Isaac_Moselane) May 8, 2017
