Parliament has fired Zelda Holtzman as its Head of Parliamentary Protection Services.
Holtzman was placed on suspension in 2015, but was acquitted on most of the charges against her.
Earlier this week, Parliament's disciplinary inquiry recommended that Holtzman be dismissed for insubordination and for failing to produce a business plan.
Holtzman has argued that she was being unfairly treated for raising concerns about Parliamentary Secretary Gengezi Mgidlana's alleged use of official vehicles fitted with blue lights, and the recruitment of police officers to improve Parliament's Protection Services.
She spoke to Stephen Grootes.

I called him out on that and called for an inquiry. I wrote to the presiding officers Baleka Mbethe and Thandi Modise on the 2 July 2015. They have not even acknowledged the letter. In fact, one of the charges brought against me was that I dare to write directly to them and that is insubordination.— Zelda Hotzman, former Head of Parliamentary Protection Services
