Cape Town - The department of justice's latest qualified report was an indictment of the leadership of National Director of Public Prosecutions Menzi Simelane, the Democratic Alliance said on Tuesday.

DA justice spokesperson Dene Smuts said the department's qualified audit for the last financial year was the fifth in a row that could be laid at Simelane's door because he was the director general until October 2009 "making him responsible for more than half the auditing year".

"The Public Service Commission recently reported that the department of justice was the worst offender in terms of the number of cases of financial misconduct during 2008/2009, which was well into Simelane's tenure as director general.

"Of the 260 total national cases, 121 related to the department of justice, and amounted to R31m. Only R500 000 was ever recovered," Smuts said.

"Given the track record of his leadership at justice, it is difficult not to reach the conclusion advocate Simelane is seemingly incapable of implementing good governing practice as an administrative head, no matter where he seems to be deployed."
