The commission is going through documents and correspondence from 2009. We have always been told by Jiba that she entered into a consensual settlement with then acting NDPP Mokotedi Mpshe which got her back to the office and her suspension being lifted.Barry Bateman, Reporter, - EWN
The correspondence reveals here that she addressed her representation to the then justice minister, Jeff Radebe. It was Radebe who instructed Mpshe to enter these agreements with Jiba and uplift that suspension.Barry Bateman, Reporter, - EWN
