Johannesburg - Questions have been raised as to whether newly appointed National Director of Public Prosecutions Mxolisi Nxasana is a security risk after it has emerged he took office without the necessary clearance.

All directors-general and top officials in security services have to get security clearance but such clearance is still pending in Nxasana’s case, 20 days after he took office. This has raised the issue of whether he can be trusted with the country’s top secrets, reported the Sunday Independent.

This comes after national police commissioner General Riah Phiyega recently withdrew the appointment of Major-General Mondli Zuma as Gauteng provincial commissioner after it was revealed that he had a pending drunk driving case against him.

Security clearance checks include background checks so as to ensure officials have no criminal records, pending cases against them, financial misconduct charges or any other embarrassing situations.
