Citizen reporter

Malusi Gigaba was found to have acted in breach of the Executive Ethics Code when he failed to submit the names of persons granted citizenship under exceptional circumstances to Parliament every year.

“As such, the minister has instructed the director-general of the department to start preparing the action plan which should be submitted to the public protector indicating the timelines of implementing the recommendations of the public protector. Likewise, the minister will submit his own action plan as directed by the public protector.

“In the coming days, the minister will unpack the full details of his intervention which he decided on late last year. The department will leave no stone unturned in uncovering dubious visas, permits such as permanent residence and special citizenships which were granted irregularly,” said Motsoaledi.
