Johannesburg - The presidency was yet to submit the correct opposing papers in response to former police commissioner Bheki Cele's bid to have his dismissal overturned, Cele's spokesperson said on Wednesday.

"There are things that we specified that we needed. We did not get any of the specified elements we require," Vuyo Mkhize said.

The presidency said it would comment on the matter later on Wednesday.

Cele is contesting the findings of the report used to fire him on June 12, written by a board of inquiry led by retired judge Jake Moloi.

He wanted the court to declare Moloi's report factually and legally unsound.

On June 13 Cele said: "The only conclusion I could draw after reading the report is that someone must have prevailed upon Justice Jake Moloi to make sure that he returns a recommendation that I be fired, at whatever cost."

On Wednesday Mkhize said the presidency missed three deadlines, July 22, July 27 and August 13, to submit these papers.

"We were given bits and pieces that we did not necessarily need."

He said among the papers that were outstanding were the opposing affidavits.

"All we can do is to ask our lawyers to press the matter more vigorously."

Mkize said they might have to approach the court if that was the only avenue open to them.

The board was mandated by Zuma to establish whether Cele had acted corruptly, dishonestly, or with an undeclared conflict of interest in relation to two police lease deals he signed with businessman Roux Shabangu.
