The Democratic Alliance (DA) says its leader Mmusi Maimane has yet to be furnished with a formal letter to be crossed-examined by President Cyril Ramaphosa.
The presidency confirmed on Wednesday that is has received a section 7(9) note from Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane, as part of the probe into a the Bosasa donation.
A section 7(9) formally notifies a person that they are implicated in a public protector investigation.
The president has therefore asked to cross-examine, Maimane and other witness interviewed by Mkhwebane.
The DA’s Azola Mboniswa says Maimane has not received a formal request from the office of Mkhwebane on Ramaphosa’s application.
However, he adds the only communication received from the public protector’s office was the process made in the investigation.
The party notes it is highly irregular for a complainant to appear for questioning.
“Also shocking for us is that Mr Maimane is not a witness or implicated in the matter.”
Mboniswa adds Maimane will only seek legal advice when the office of Mkhwebane issues a formal subpoena.
