A leaked intelligence report has concluded there is a “high likelihood” that ANC MP Xiaomei Havard could be sharing classified information about South Africa with the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), News24 reported in an exclusive cover earlier today.
Xiaomei Havard is a Chinese-born South African businesswoman and politician from Gauteng who currently serves as a Member of Parliament for the African National Congress. Xiaomei has been a member of the National Assembly of South Africa since 2021.
She is also the president of the Africa Federation of Chinese Women in Commerce and Industry and the co-president of the South Africa-China Famous Female Business Council.
According to the intelligence report, which News24 reported it had seen, the State Security Agency’s (SSA) counter-intelligence unit had flagged concerns over Havard’s links to China and its impact on national security.
This is a developing story.
