In the midst of a legal battle with Minister Pravin Gordhan, Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has taken him on in a bombshell YouTube video. In the lengthy clip, Mkhwebane explains the various cases she has against the Public Enterprises Minister.
Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has published a tell-all video, explaining the situation as far as Minister Pravin Gordhan is concerned.
In the five-minute clip, Mkhwebane explains the numerous cases she has against Gordhan, revealing that she intends to serve the Public Enterprises head with yet another notice.
This time, her case is in relation to her investigation into a SARS 'rogue unit', following her findings that Gordhan had improperly approved the early retirement of a deputy commissioner at the entity in 2010.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that her adverse findings had been met with mixed reactions. Some had felt the timing of her report had been suspicious, with Ramaphosa poised to announce Gordhan as a part of his Cabinet.
Others, like Economic Freedom Fighter leader, Julius Malema, had supported Mkhwebane in her work, even going as far as to extend the use of his legal team to the Public Protector.
With this new case in the pipeline, Mkhwebane is expecting backlash from both supporters of the minister as well as the media, reports eNCA.
