The Sunday Independent newspaper reported that communications director general (DG) Rosey Sekese had to resort to legal action to lift her special leave after she was locked out of her office.
However, when Sekese returned from her special leave she could not enter her office as the locks were changed.
The newspaper reported that the DoC’s security threatened to evict her, and that the police were called in to remove her from her office.
Sekese started legal action to resolve the issue, and according to the Sunday Independent an out of court settlement with communications minister Dina Pule allowed her to return to work.
It was further reported that despite her return, Pule is still using Buthelezi as acting DG, cutting Sekese out of the loop.
