The Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane, said she was only trying clear Minister Pravin Gordhan’s name to end a dispute.
Mkhwebane alleges that the minister interferes with her investigation after Gordhan putted his legal representative on her.
The investigation is being conducted following the so-called privatization of the SA Reserve Bank which the minister has been accused of.
Earlier, the Public Protecter extended the time to Gordhan to respond to allegations that he was involved in the matter, claiming that she had the opportunity to clear the minister’s name.
She told the media that the minister should rather be pleased that the matter was being brought to a conclusion, but then he started interfering in the investigation of a complaint that was being put to the EFF.
