Public Protector laid charges against Adv Mandonsela
27 November 2016
A criminal charge has been laid against former public protector Thuli Madonsela by the new head of the office Busisiwe Mkhwebane, after receiving a complaint from the president.
According to a report, Mkhwebane laid the charges against her predecessor after President Jacob Zuma complained about the release of the audio from his and Madonsela’s interview on the state capture report.
The report says that the charges were laid at the Brooklyn police station in Pretoria two weeks ago.
At the time, the Presidency announced that it had required clarity from the Office of the Public Protector on the policy of the institution regarding the release of audio recordings of interviews conducted during the course of investigations.
