JOHANNESBURG - Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has found that Treasury DG Dondo Mogajane failed to disclose a criminal record when applying for the post in 2015.

Mkhwebane made the announcement at a briefing in Pretoria on Wednesday.

She has now directed President Cyril Ramaphosa to take appropriate disciplinary action against Mogajane.

It was also found that Western Cape Premier Helen Zille violated the executive member’s ethics code by exposing herself to the risk of a conflict of interest.

This was by offering assistance to an education workshop programme involving her son in 2014.

Mkhwebane has noted that her son's project benefited many pupils.

But says there was the risk of a conflict of interest between Zille's official responsibilities and her private interests.
