Hawks Assured Madonsela That Her Docket Case Was Closed but She Still Fears
Last week, the outgoing Public Protector Thuli Madonsela expressed fears of being arrested by the Hawks. This is despite assurance she received from the unit that she is not a subject of any investigation.
“There was no basis for the investigation and the docket was closed.” said Hawks spokesman Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi.
Madonsela spoke to The Times and expressed her worries about the fact that the Hawks were investigating Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan. “I do not want to get into [a discussion about] law enforcement but what is happening to Gordhan worries me.” Modonsela told The Times.
Contravention of the Public Protectors Act Case
SABC news reported that former government spin doctor Jimmy Manyi has laid a case against the Public Protector at the Langlaagte police station. It is believe that this is not related Hawks matter Madonsela is worried about.
Manyi accuses Madonsela of bias in her investigations and want the police to investigate her for the possible contravention of the Public Protector’s act.
