Johannesburg - Tito Maleka, head of security at the ANC headquarters in Johannesburg has hauled the party before the Commission for Conciliation, Mediation and Arbitration (CCMA) after allegedly being sacked over the missing Gaddafi billions.

The commission last week confirmed the case but refused to reveal details. The Sunday Independent however reported that Maleka wants compensation for his alleged unfair dismissal. He was fired while recovering from heart surgery but sources in the ANC say Maleka’s dismissal has been seen as a purge because of the assistance he has been providing the Libyans in tracing the assets hidden across South Africa.

The loot, brought into the country by former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, is estimated at US$10bn (about R98bn).

Maleka, who has been in charge of the party’s intelligence and counter-intelligence gathering for several years, was the first South African that Libyan authorities contacted to trace the assets.

He is seen to have inside knowledge of senior ANC and government officials involved in the disappearance of the assets. A Libyan representative tasked by the Libyan government to recover the assets this week expressed shock at Maleka’s removal. He told the Sunday Independent: “Maleka was very helpful to the Libyans in their cause. Maleka never asked anything from the Libyan government for his co-operation on the matter.”
