Social media users have speculated that Tina Joemat-Pettersson either took her own life or was murdered as her cause of death has not yet been revealed.

@KingKele6: “I suspect she has been killed she was about to tell all confess.”

@AdvoBarryRoux: “Tina Monica Joemat-Pettersson committed suicide after the bribery scandal. Tina Joemat-Peterson is among the 3 ANC MPs who tried tried to extort a R600, 000 bribe from Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s husband to make the Section 194 inquiry probing Mkhwebane’s fitness to hold office go away.”

Radio personality @DavidMashabela said: “May Tina Joemat-Pettersson’s soul rest in peace. Interesting how the reports don’t say what or how she died.”

IOL reported Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s husband Mandla Skhosana laid a complaint with the police accusing Joemat-Pettersson of trying to extort money from him.

While Independent Media reported that Joemat-Pettersson and the three MPs including (ANC) Parliamentary Chief Whip Pemmy Majodina and chairperson of the inquiry Qubudile Dyantyi, were allegedly trying to extort a R600 000 bribe from Mkhwebane and her husband.

Sunday World reveals that Joemat-Pettersson yesterday, 5 June said she welcomes police investigations into the matter.

A recent Sunday Independent exposé implicated her and two other MPs for soliciting a bribe to make suspended Public Protector advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s Section 194 Parliamentary inquiry go away.

The Star confirmed on Monday, 5 June that Skosana met Hawks investigators in Germiston, Ekurhuleni, on Friday, 2 June where he handed over all the WhatsApp messages between him and Joemat-Pettersson.

Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Thandi Mbambo confirmed: “We can confirm that the Hawks received a case docket of extortion as per cas 95/05/23 for further investigation. Investigating is at its infancy stage. We are not at liberty to discuss details thereof so as to protect the integrity of the investigation.”
