Madonsela’s gratuity pay, adding up to R4 million, will be docked by R750 000, reports The New Age.
Madonsela’s son crashed a state vehicle in 2012, and damages for the BMW X6 are apparently yet to be settled, though Madonsela disputes this.
Public protector spokesperson Kgalalelo Masibi, however, told the paper a letter had been sent to the former public protector requesting her to pay the amount.
“The money will be deducted from her gratuity. The public protector contacted G-Fleet to get the itemised bill for repairs from the panel beater, which it submitted.”
Madonsela has not responded to the letter and has previously stated the issue had been cleared by the auditor general, and she was not liable for the damages.
“This is the first time I learn of such an intention. I have no idea on what basis or authority that would be done,” she commented about the money being deducted from her gratuity.
The paper further reports that a senior manager sent an instruction for the case file to be closed.
