Gordhan to appear before Public Protector

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

Lawyer for Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan says his client will appear before the Public Protector, despite a lack of evidence of wrongdoing against him.

Attorney Malatji Kanyane has rubbished claims that the minister ignored letters from the Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s office.

In a letter Gordhan sent to Mkhwebane on Friday through his lawyer Malatji Kanyane Attorneys, the minister responded to the public protector after she took to Twitter claiming that the minister had not responded to her letters during her investigation.


Kanyane says the minister received communication from Mkhwebane in February this year and they have responded.

The public protector is investigating him in connection with an early retirement package offered to former South African Revenue Service (SARS) deputy commissioner, Ivan Pillay.
