The long awaiting briefing has left many numb, owing to the gravity of graft let out to the public domain by the Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebaneduring a media briefing in Pretoria where she released formal investigation reports.

The Democratic Alliance (DA) has called on Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane to release four reports involving the Gupta family on Monday “in the interest of transparency and the South African public”.

Mkhwebane gave very little away when she announced she would hold a media briefing at her office on Monday morning “to release formal investigation reports”.

The Sunday Times reported that she had sat on at least four separate investigative reports involving the Gupta family since she took up office eight months ago.

Her office told the newspaper that the reports were pending, not buried.
