Protector says her office not being probed
Johannesburg - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela has denied reports that Parliament asked for a probe into maladministration, financial misconduct and racism in her office.
"It is not true that Parliament has asked me to look into those matters," Madonsela told reporters at a two-day leadership conference in Muldersdrift on Thursday.
The New Age reported that she faced an uprising amid allegations of maladministration and financial misconduct.
Madonsela denied she was summoned to Cape Town on January 13 to explain the allegations.
The meeting was reportedly with the Speaker of Parliament Max Sisulu, National Council of Provinces chairperson Mninwa Mahlangu, and both their deputies.
She said she had a meeting with the presiding officers of Parliament earlier this year about the Protection of State Information Bill.
"That meeting had nothing, I repeat nothing, to do with governance and administration in my office," she said.
