The Democratic Alliance says it noted with concern two developments regarding government’s response to the findings of the Public Protector’s police lease deals reports.

First, a letter tabled in Parliament sent by President Jacob Zuma to Speaker Max Sisulu strongly indicates that the President has no intention of holding either the Minister of Public Works or the National Police Commissioner accountable.

The DA is referring for the improper and unlawful conduct of which the Public Protector found them both guilty.

The DA’s Parliamentary leader, Athol Trollip, also reported that the Speaker has referred the reports to Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts illustrates that the ANC is seeking to abuse parliamentary mechanisms to bury Advocate Thuli Madonsela’s damning findings.
