Ginwala inquiry announces timeline for submissions

The Ginwala inquiry into suspended prosecutions head Vusi Pikoli on Monday announced a timeline for key submissions to it, the South African Broadcasting Corporation reported.

Lawson Naidoo, spokesperson for Frene Ginwala, said they were expecting Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development Brigitte Mabandla’s submission on January 15 and Pikoli’s on January 31.

It was previously reported that Pikoli’s response to the minister was expected on January 12 — and on the basis of the submissions a decision will be made to either hold hearings or take a final decision on the matter.

Pikoli was suspended in September last year. President Thabo Mbeki cited an ”irretrievable breakdown in the working relationship between Pikoli and Minister Mabandla.”

The president then appointed Ginwala to head an inquiry into Pikoli’s fitness for the office and related issues. — Sapa
