Government watchdog Scopa wants President Jacob Zuma to recall former correctional services minister Ngconde Balfour from his position as ambassador to Botswana.

Scopa head Themba Godi is quoted as saying he is perplexed at how Balfour can continue to represent South Africa when he so seriously let the nation down.

The Special Investigations Unit has uncovered suspected corrupt dealings in the correctional services ministry under Balfour's watch.

African National Congress spokesperson Jackson Mthembu says today that "at this stage" Balfour would not be questioned.
