Masango said he also suspected his movements or phone calls were monitored.

Evidence leader advocate Pule Seleka asked: “Since you testified at the parliamentary portfolio committee, you have been threatened and your safety compromised?”

Masango responded: “Yes, I don’t know by who but from time to time there were people following me and sometimes when I sit in restaurant people will take photos.”

Masango said he reported to the police when a drone was flown above his house, however, they didn’t open a case, but they recorded the incident in their occurrence book.

“As we speak, I still feel unsafe; the issue of the drone happened twice, and I reported to the [Mpumalanga] provincial commissioner Mr [Mondli] Zuma.”

He also told the commission that at a meeting with Matshela Koko and Salim Essa, his phone was taken and returned after the meeting.
