The Democratic Alliance (DA) has called for President Cyril Ramaphosa to sack the South African Home Affairs Minister, Malusi Gigaba.
Today, 1 November 2018, the DA called the for South African President, Cyril Ramaphosa to, “…rid the country once and for all of this compromised Minister [Malusi Gigaba].”
The party also said it would be vehemently against any attempt by Gigaba to use taxpayer’s money in order to review the Public Protector’s findings against him.
The DA added that “The Minister has already spent R874 199.25 in public funds in defending the Fireblade case. After his appeal to the Constitutional Court was dismissed, he approached the Supreme Court of Appeal which similarly dismissed his application.”
“Gigaba has since indicated his intention to approach the Constitutional Court again to appeal against the decision of the Supreme Court of Appeal.”
“The South African public purse cannot be ransacked to finance the Minister’s fanciful legal actions in perpetuity.”
The Democratic Alliance believes that if Ramaphosa were to dismiss Gigaba from his cabinet, it would help alleviate the deep mistrust in the current government.
This latest call from the DA, amongst a myriad of others, follows the Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s report. The controversial report alleges that Minister Gigaba lied under oath which means he may have, in effect, violated the Executive Ethics Code as well as the South African Constitution.
