Protector gets reaction on Shiceka saga

2011-10-04 13:17
Cape Town - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has received all responses to her provisional report on Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Sicelo Shiceka.

Reaction had come from the presidency, Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan, and Shiceka, Madonsela's office said on Tuesday.

The deadline for responses to her provisional report on allegations that Shiceka breached the executive code of ethics was midnight on Monday.

"The public protector will study the responses and integrate them to the extent possible in the final report," Madonsela's office said.

There would be no immediate comment on the matter as this would undermine the integrity of the investigation, as well as the protector's effectiveness.

"The public protector will only comment on the responses in the final report."

The document would be made public after it had been finalised on a date which would be announced soon.

Last week, Madonsela said the leaking of a provisional report from her office had not served the public's interest.

She expressed disappointment at Business Day's decision to publish her report on Shiceka's alleged misuse of tax money.

The newspaper reported that Madonsela had called on President Jacob Zuma to consider "serious action" against Shiceka after finding he had misused tax money on personal travels and hotel stays.

It wrote that Madonsela's provisional report, of which it received a copy on Tuesday night, found Shiceka had spent R546 864 to travel to Switzerland to visit his girlfriend, presenting his trip as official.

At the time, his girlfriend was serving a prison sentence for being a drug mule.
