Public Protector Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane has denied laying charges against former Public Protector Advocate Thuli Madonsela.
Mkhwebane says she opened the case at the Brooklyn police station in Pretoria requesting an investigation into an alleged leak, to establish if leaks amount to a breach of a Section of the Public Protector Act.
She says she received complaints from the Presidency and the office of the Speaker of the National Assembly, and then she says she received an inquiry from Noseweek magazine, in which they claim to have a recording of a meeting with Vytjie Mentor and Thuli Madonsela.— Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter
She says there is another newspaper saying it has an interview of EFF leader Julius Malema.
She feels that there is a need to protect the Public Protector's office and the trust that public have in her office, by safeguarding the information her office has, especially when it comes to whistle-blowers.— Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter
