Where there's smoke there's fire...

I like the deliberate choice of words in the response!!!
“We want to put on record that the department has never been approached by the SAPS nor the Auditor General’s office on the allegations as claimed by a so called letter sent to the SAPS and the Auditor General. Until we are approached by the SAPS the Ministry reaffirms its willingness to avail our staff members if they are needed by the law enforcement agencies,” the ministry's statement said.

Arrest both of them and put them in the same jail cell - the one that is left alive after their death match ends, is clearly more guilty than the other one, and wins a one-way trip to a new career as a political prisoner in either China or North Korea.

NYANDA SAYS FORMER DG HAS 'CROSSED THE LINE' (FROM SAPA)

The Minister of Communications Siphiwe Nyanda on Sunday said his former director general Mamodupi Mohlala had "crossed the line" following a Sunday Independent report.

"The Minister of Communications General (Ret) Siphiwe Nyanda believes his Director General (DG), Mamodupi Mohlala, has now crossed the line if the allegations contained in today's Sunday Independent are correct," he was quoted as saying in a statement issued by spokesman Panyaza Lesufi.

"The ministry rejects the baseless and fabricated allegations that the DG's contract was terminated because she laid criminal charges about tenders with [the] Auditor General and the South African Police Service (SAPS).

"This attitude can't continue unchallenged," Nyanda was quoted as saying.

"The termination of [the] contract of the DG had nothing to do with contracts but all to do with her conduct, processes and systems."

The Sunday Independent reported that the day before she was axed as director general, Mohlala had reported tender irregularities worth R70 million to the police for a fraud and corruption investigation.

Mohlala had also reportedly written to the Auditor General saying "several forensic audits" had shown how tender processes were flouted.

She had reportedly called for disciplinary action against senior officials.

The Sunday Independent said Mohlala had refused to comment when they contacted her.

The communications department said in its statement on Sunday: "We want to put on record that the department has never being (sic) approached by the SAPS nor the Auditor General's office on the allegations as claimed by a so called letter send to the SAPS and the Auditor General.

"Until we are approached by the SAPS, the ministry reaffirms its willingness to avail our staff members if they are needed by the law enforcement agencies."

Mohlala was dismissed by Nyanda in July following an "irreparable breakdown" in their relationship.

Mohlala had contested the legality of her dismissal, arguing that only the president could fire a director general.

In a settlement with Nyanda it was agreed Mohlala would take a month's leave, during which Public Service and Administration Minister Richard Baloyi would find a suitable post for her in the public service, negotiate "redeployment" with her and conclude the contract before September 27.

She has rejected a R2.9 million golden handshake.

Nyanda is a crook. End of story.

Nothing he has done to date suggests his intentions are honest or that he is focused on his role in the MoC!

The sooner he is "withdrawn" and redeployed in some other insignificant role where he has zero influence on tenders the better.

Besides, we really need a minister and department who are focused on bring the country into the future, and who have the country's best interests at heart ... and not their back pocket.

So does that mean that once they are approached by the SAPS, then they'll no longer be willing to avail their staff members if they are needed by the law enforcement agencies???
