Parliamentary Question: Presidency: Public Protector’s report


The Leader of the Opposition (DA) to ask the President of the Republic:

Whether, in light of the Public Protector’s findings on 22 February 2011 that the conduct of a certain person, (name and details furnished), was improper, unlawful and amounted to maladministration, the said person is still fit to serve the country in his current capacity;
if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, what are the relevant details?


I have received the Public Protector’s report and I am studying it.

I am also awaiting reports from the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development and the Secretary to Cabinet who are already in discussion with the Public Protector on the issues she has raised.

Once I have received all the outstanding information I shall consider the matter and decide what steps, if any, need to be taken.

I am therefore not in a position to fully answer the question posed by the Honourable Member yet, as that would be tantamount to pre-judging the issues.
