The Organisation Undoing Tax Abuse (Outa) says it welcomes Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane's findings on Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba who is said to have lied under oath during the Fireblade Aviation vs Minister Gigaba case.
Mkhwebane has directed President Cyril Ramaphosa to take appropriate disciplinary action against Gigaba.
In December last year, in litigation between the department and the company, the High Court found Gigaba deliberately told untruths.
Chief Executive Officer at OUTA Wayne Duvenage says this is sufficient evidence for Ramaphosa to remove the minister.
I just think Malusi Gigaba is not really a minister that the people favor and this type of development now is what I would see as the last straw that broke the camel's back on a decision to remove him.— Wayne Duvenage, Chief Executive Officer at OUTA
He should have been removed some time ago. I think this now puts a lot of wind in the sails for the president to make this decision a lot easier, if the president doesn't act and remove him then we would find this quite strange.— Wayne Duvenage, Chief Executive Officer at OUTA
