Court: PP’s opposition to president’s application is mind-boggling

PRETORIA – The High Court has described the Public Protector’s opposition to an urgent application brought by President Cyril Ramaphosa as mind-boggling.The court today ruled that Ramaphosa had complied with the remedial action in the report related to Minister Pravin Gordhan’s authorisation of a Sars employee’s early retirement.Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane instructed the president to take disciplinary steps against GordhanBut he wanted to wait until Gordhan’s judicial review of the report wass concluded.Judge Lettie Molopa-Sethosa referred to two recent interdict applications which the Public Protector did not oppose.“The president and Minister Gordhan are correct in stating that is there is no consistency. It is mind-boggling basically why in this matter the Public Protector didn’t even consent to at least have the remedial action stayed pending finalisation of the review application.”The judge found Ramaphosa did comply with the remedial action when he informed Mkhwebane that he had noted her findings.But his plan was to wait until the conclusion of Gordhan’s review of Mkhwebane’s report.The EFF meanwhile says it will appeal the ruling.WATCH: Public Protector loses court battle against Cyril RamaphosaSource: EWN

    Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.

    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
