Thuli Madonsela is living in fear for her life after she was warned that a prominent Western Cape gang boss had been paid to arrange a hit on her‚ the Sunday Times newspaper reported.

The public protector has beefed up security and restricted her movements after receiving a tip-off from a “trusted” whistleblower.


The whistleblower‚ a known police informant‚ told Madonsela the gang boss had been paid R740000 and that three hitmen were planning to kill next month in a hit made to seem like a car accident.

A distraught Madonsela spoke to the Sunday Times this week about her ordeal‚ saying she had immediately alerted the police’s VIP Protection Unit.
