Protector concerned about her safety

2011-07-06 22:52

Pretoria - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela is considering approaching Parliament regarding her personal security, she said on Wednesday.

Speaking at a National Press Club news briefing in Pretoria, she said: "I think I will request a meeting with the Speaker of Parliament and discuss my situation and get advice from Parliament about what I should do."

Madonsela made the comments after being asked if she was fearing for her life in the wake of media reports that she was about to be arrested on allegations of fraud and corruption - allegations she strenuously denied.

"The truth is that we are all going to die some day, we just don't know when we are going to die," she said.

Earlier this year her offices were raided by police after she released a report into a controversial Pretoria building lease involving the police, the department of public works and property tycoon Roux Shabangu.

The reports of the current allegations precede her release of a report into a building lease in Durban, also involving police, the department of public works and Shabangu.
