Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane who took over from Thuli Madonsela is after Secretary to parliament for alleged abuse of power.
Gengezi Mgidlana, is being investigated for abuse of power by Advocate Mkhwebane.
Trade union Nehawu and an axed senior parliamentary manager laid complaints against the Secretary.
And now the national legislature is accused of not taking seriously instructions from Mkhwebane after National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete failed to meet the Public Protector’s deadline to submit documents deemed as central to her investigation against the CEO of parliament.
Baleka Mbete will be on Public Protectors nest list to be investigated after failing to meet the deadline.
Mkhwebane wants Mbete’s office to produce parliamentary policies that authorise Mgidlana to travel in a state vehicle fitted with a blue light, order parliamentary staff to chauffeur his wife around, written permission allowing the secretary to parliament to embark on overseas benchmarking trips that cost the taxpayer almost R2-million in 2015 among others.
Mkhwebane wrote to Mbete in the first week of April, requesting her to submit these documents by April 25 but she instead requested for the deadline to be extended instead of complying with it.
Sources say parliament does not have policy allowing for his wife to be chauffeur driven or to use blue-light vehicles.
