Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s office is investigating City Power.
Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has no interest in engaging in a public feud with advocate Thuli Madonsela, her predecessor.
The former governor said that evidence attributed to him in the report, namely that SARB had agreed that Absa would pay back both the capital amount and interest and then reneged on the agreement, is false.
Advocate Mkhwebane in a statement by her office on Tuesday denied claims made in a City Press report on Sunday.
According to the article, the basis for the “charges” is the alleged leak of an audio recording of a meeting between her predecessor and President Jacob Zuma.
The Presidency on Monday lodged a complaint with the Office of the Public Protector regarding the leaking of the recording to television channel ENCA.
The DA on Sunday said that it plans to report CoGTA Minister Des Van Rooyen to Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane.
DA leader Mmusi Maimane in a statement on Wednesday said that he, as a complainant in the matter, is entitled by law to be provided with a copy of the report completed by former Public Protector, Advocate Thuli Madonsela.
It was confirmed on Monday by parliament that the report had been returned to Mkhwebane. National Assembly secretary Masibulele Xaso personally delivered the “state capture” report.
National Assembly Speaker, Baleka Mbete has after speaking to ANC Chief Whip, Jackson Mthembu rejected the claims that she declined to take custody of the state capture report.
