Hawks’ leader, Godfrey Lebeya, is investigating bribery and extortion claims raised by suspended Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane.
Their objective is to diligently seek out the truth in this matter.
Mkhwebane has claimed that her husband was approached by Tina Joemat-Pettersson, a former member of Parliament from the African National Congress (ANC), who is now deceased.
Joemat-Pettersson allegedly made an offer of R600,000 to make the parliamentary proceedings against her disappear.
According to Mkhwebane, she asserts that Richard Dyanti, the chairperson of the Section 194 committee, and another member of the African National Congress (ANC) in Parliament, Pemmy Majodina, were involved in the alleged incident.
Lebeya has verified that he is indeed conducting an investigation into the allegations.
He mentioned that they are collaborating with prosecutors and have taken steps to involve the appropriate authorities through legal channels.
However, he did not provide detailed insights into their investigative methods.
Lebeya emphasized the importance of systematically seeking the truth in this new matter, implying that they are deploying various investigative techniques to uncover the facts.
