Johannesburg: The documents of Samantha Lewthwaite, dubbed the White Widow,` are under scrutiny after it was revealed that she acquired her South African passport fraudulently.

Several law enforcement agencies are gathering information about the British terror suspect, home affairs director general Mkuseli Apleni told reporters in Pretoria.

According to a news channel, he said that the matter is being investigated, but not by the department of home affairs only. It is being investigated by the JCPS (Justice, Crime Prevention and Security Cluster) also.

The government is investigating reports that Lewthwaite may have travelled to Kenya on a South African passport, under the name of Natalie Faye Webb, and was part of the Westgate Mall siege in Nairobi , the report said.

Last week, home affairs spokesperson Ronnie Mamoepa said South Africa would work with the Kenyan authorities to obtain a copy of the passport `to enable them to determine the facts`.

It has been reported that a woman implicated in the mall terror attack could be Lewthwaite.
