Madonsela expected to release final batch of investigations as term ends
It’s said she’s working furiously to complete a number of investigations ahead of expected briefing tomorrow.
JOHANNESBURG - Public Protector Thuli Madonsela is expected to release her "final batch" of investigations tomorrow, as her term in office comes to an end.
President Jacob Zuma and the Gupta family have asked Madonsela not to conclude the investigation into state capture until they have had the opportunity to interview witnesses.
It's understood Madonsela is working furiously today to complete a number of investigations ahead of a briefing expected to take place tomorrow.
There's been no word on whether or not she will release a report, or part of a report, into allegations of state capture, and whether President Zuma has been unduly influenced by the controversial Gupta family.
Lawyers representing the Guptas say Madonsela did not follow due process, and they must be given an opportunity to look at all the evidence she has gathered and interview the witnesses.
Zuma has asked the outgoing Public Protector not to release the report until he's been afforded the same opportunity.
