The young South African model who was allegedly rescued from sex traffickers in Malaysia, Princess Mahlangu, allegedly concocted the whole story – apparently as a way to get home.

It was originally reported that the young woman was supposedly lured by a fake online beauty pageant, but it appears she was informed by the organiser that the pageant had been cancelled but she decided to travel to Malaysia anyway to “avoid embarrassment”, apparently because she had been tweeting about it a lot.

Later, Police Minister Fikile Mbalula appeared to take a huge personal interest in her case, and allegedly even paid the costs for her return flight home on Sunday from the Far East from his personal funds.

At the time when he announced her “rescue” at a press conference, there was already dispute that Mahlangu, a 24-year-old aspiring beauty queen and model from Bloemfontein, was telling the truth. Mbalula, however, was adamant on TV news that the young woman was telling the truth.

A police source, however, told the tabloid that “there were no elements of crime in the case”.

“When she [Mahlangu] got there, she did not have proper accommodation. So she decided to lie to the police that she was being trafficked,” according to an unnamed police source.

Pageant organiser Tare Munzara was quoted as saying that he had been “shocked” at Mahlangu’s claims that he may have been involved in sex trafficking.

“I lost a lot of business deals because of Princess’s false claims.”

Mbalula’s spokesperson told the tabloid no case was actually ever opened to investigate the matter. Other sources, however, said it had been opened but was subsequently closed. Sunday World reported that it had seen documents showing the Hawks had been handling the case.

The paper could not obtain comment from Mahlangu, who Sunday World says is now being investigated for her claims. The Citizen

  • Mbalula always jump into conclusions before investigations are complete.

  • Beauty without brains

  • I have heard of cases of alleged rape cases where some men have been sent to prison for crimes they ddnt commit. Some people make up cases especially women just to make you suffer. The courts are quick.to judge especially when you are poor!!

    • some are even calling for the death-penalty to return,imagine how many innocent poor black men would be killed

    • I was touched by some four men at Chikurubi maximum prison. They said they were falsely accused for rape and sentenced to more than 10 years. They are serving their sentences though but they still plead innocent after serving more than 5 years. At some point the courts dont actually look at the cases but because you cannot afford to pay lawyers!!!

    • Ah shame

  • Mbalula was blaming a Zim guy ?

  • Sorry for you.

  • Stupid girl

  • Hw can u pack bags to fly to compete let alone to attend bogus pageant that u c online #saveusthembarrassment

  • South Africans will find it hard to be trusted again. Who would take a risk of dealing with people who would soil your reputation to this extent for selfish ego massaging.

  • A lot of hard work to the neck that carries the head which had no brains,poor girl.
