OPEN LETTER: Public Protector re suspected irregularities in IEC lease agreement
OPEN LETTER - FOLLOW-UP: SUSPECTED IRREGULARITIES IN IEC LEASE AGREEMENTS
Dear Advocate Madonsela
The abovementioned matter has reference.
On the 3rd of October 2011, I wrote a letter requesting the office of the Public Protector to investigate suspected irregularities in the lease agreements of the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC).
I again wrote on 14 March 2012, almost a year ago, to make follow on the request.
Some time thereafter we met at your offices in Pretoria, on 9 July 2012, to discuss progress. You sensitised us about your workload, but had undertaken to expedite the process.
On 8 October 2012 you wrote to explain that your investigation team had been in the process of verifying information and investigating matters with other relevant role-players. The report was not ready.
The delays in finalising this investigation raises concern; as it stands the matter has been with the Public Protector's office for more than a year.
Would you please give an indication of when you expect to finalise this investigation and publish your report.
Mr Bantu Holomisa, MP
President of the United Democratic Movement
