Protector: No Mdluli probe

2012-04-24 16:25

Cape Town - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela said on Tuesday her office will not be investigating Crime Intelligence boss Richard Mdluli.

Madonsela said findings in the preliminary investigation made her office decide not to proceed with a full scale investigation.

The case was handed over to the inspector general of intelligence, Faith Radebe, because she was already busy with the investigation, she said.

"[The inspector general] said she was at an advanced stage [of the investigation]," Madonsela told journalists in Cape Town.

"She said even though Mdluli was accused of various criminal implications, the case was not brought before her office for criminality, but for maladministration.

"The criminality of the case has already been sorted out by the NPA," said Madonsela.

The inspector general of intelligence will only be looking at maladministration allegations.

"I am satitisfied the inspectior general has the jurisdiction to do this," she said.

    Thuli, you in their pockets already?

    What a misleading headline, creating the impression that Thuli is not going to investigate... and by the first responses we can already see that people only read the headline. Morons.

    Blame has already threatened her about investigating the ANC cadres....She is saving her skin.

    Fearing for her life, maybe?

  • Marion - 2012-04-24 16:53

    Certainly hope that the inspector general of intelligence is not a relative in any way whatsoever.

      blah blah blah....What are you on about?

      Tony Lapson - 2012-04-24 18:05

      Yeah, all these views aren't new on political news24 articles.

  • bluzulu - 2012-04-24 17:38

    Here's an excellent example of Mob mentality, Posters just posting on what other comments insinuate, little do they realize what the facts of the article indicate.

      Tony Lapson - 2012-04-24 17:44

      LOL I'm pretty sure it has been established that the one person on the comments, willing to ignore facts... Is you.

      Heiku - 2012-04-24 17:54

      bluzulu you're a perfect example of contrarian mentality, which is worse than mob mentality in most cases. Not because it's different but because you dont actually make up your own mind. You just go the opposite way no matter what.

      bluzulu - 2012-04-24 19:06

      Don't apologize( In your ways) for the Mobsters,

  • Gavin - 2012-04-24 17:46

    Hmmm....hopefully we can have faith in Faith.

  • Cilliers - 2012-04-24 18:04

    Bluzulu, friend, I agree with you on all counts. Our President-to-be is just being firm and correct, and strategically sound. Why not support Ms. Radebe to face up to her responsibilities? If she rules honestly and well, Thuli has a trustworthy ally in the battle against maladministration and corruption, and if she doesn't, Thuli hasn't exposed herself to accusations of encroaching upon others' domain, or of being biased in favour of the DA. This is just another demonstration of why this woman should be President!

      Tony Lapson - 2012-04-24 18:06

      I'll second that. She does a good job.

  • george.ncebesha - 2012-04-24 22:44

    THULI HERE YOU ARE SO WRONG THESE MAN IS NOT INNOCENT PLEASE I HOPE THESE IS UNTRUE WITH ALL DUE RESPECT. BLUZULU IF IT TAKES ALL DEPARTMENT TO FIGHT ONE CRIME LET IT BE PEOPLE MARRY 10 WIVES YOU DO NOT COMPLAIN LET THESE ISSUE BE Stretched IT HOLDS A NUMBERS OF ISSUES INCLUDING THOSE THAT A RELEVENT TO THULI'S OFFICE
