Parliament wants full account from Gigaba on Oppenheimer case
Public Protector Busisiwe Mukhwebani has advised President Cyril Ramaphosa to take 'appropriate disciplinary action' against Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba.
The advocate released her investigation report on Gigaba at a briefing in Pretoria on Wednesday and relates these to a High Court finding last year which found that the minister had deliberately told untruths under oath.
Speaking to Xolani Gwala, Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Home Affairs Hlomane Chauke says the fact that the Public Protector has released a statement doesn't change the fact that they still want Gigaba to come to Parliament and give an account about the Oppenheimer case.
What is happening is that the report of the Public Protector refers the issues to the Speaker of Parliament and to the President and those are two actions that they are very clear with regards to members who have gone against the court of ethics.Hlomane Chauke, Chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Home Affairs
