“People must not respond nor give this scammers any money as I do not send anyone emails asking for anything,” she appealed.

Her spokeswoman Sibongile Mkani-Mpolweni said the Premier’s office was alerted to this email when several people called asking about its authenticity.

The police are investigating a fraud case.
