JOHANNESBURG - The Public Protector's office has confirmed it has received a complaint from the National Union of Metalworkers of South Africa (Numsa) against the Road Accident Fund.

Busisiwe Mkhwebane's spokesperson Oupa Segalwe says in the complaint Numsa has alleged the debt of the Road Accident Fund is preventing it from performing its core function.

The labour union announced on Monday it had lodged a complaint with the Public Protector.

Segalwe says the office will assess whether the case has merit.

“Once the Public Protector has been able to establish those facts, she will be in a position to indicate as to whether she will investigate. At this stage there’s no investigation.”
