Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has laid a counter charge against Minister of State Security Dipuo Letsatsi-Duba

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has laid a counter charge against Minister of State Security Dipuo Letsatsi-Duba, over what she sees as interference with the functioning of her office and contempt for her.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the Public Protector said the decision was made after Letsatsi-Duba’s failure to avail to Mkhwebane a declassified document she required in connection with an investigation into alleged violation of the Executive Members’ Ethics Act by former Minister of Finance and current Minister of Public Enterprises Pravin Gordhan.

City Press reported recently that the minister opened a criminal case against Mkhwebane, accusing her of stealing information and violating the country’s security laws.

Spokesperson for the Public Protector, Oupa Segalwe explains.

The Public Protector is investigating alleged improper conduct on the part of the current minister of public enterprises and the issue relates to his past roles in a different capacity. Central to that is a report that resulted from an investigation carried out by the inspector general of intelligence.

The Public Protector proceeded to write to the minister to request that report, when it was not forthcoming she subpoenaed the document in question and as part of that, there was a meeting where the minister undertook to share a declassified version of that report with the public protector.

The reasons the public protector has laid criminal charges against the minister is because she has subpoenaed the document and she still does not have it. She is of the view that the minister is treating her office with contempt and interfering with the function of the office.
