Public protector 'baffled' by court battle
Minister Tina Joemat-Pettersson wants Madonsela’s probe into her alleged corruption to be reviewed.
CAPE TOWN - The Public Protector's office says it's baffled by the Agriculture, Forestry & Fisheries Department's intention to take it to court.
She has recommended Joemat-Pettersson face disciplinary action.
The Public Protector's spokesperson, Kgalalelo Masibi said, "The department agreed to the findings and what was contained in the report. Now, to turn around and say that the report must be taken under review is tough."
But the Agriculture Minister has denied the allegations and wants Madonsela's findings to be reviewed.
