Public Works and Infrastructure Minister Patricia de Lille says she will stop at nothing to clean up her department and put "criminals in jail".

On Sunday, De Lille responded to allegations of abuse of power made by Mahalingum Govender, the former deputy director-general for real estate management at the department, and the DA who has been calling for her head.

In his complaint, Govender asked Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane to investigate De Lille for abusing her office and powers by interfering in the procurement process of his division (real estate management services).
