The presidency has decided to slam Presidential spokesperson Ms Khusela Diko with an internal Disciplinary process.

According to the Presidency, the SIU has not obtained any evidence pointing to Ms Diko’s involvement in the awarding of two contracts by the Gauteng Department of Health to Royal Bhaca.

Based on a referral from the SIU on her failure to disclose her financial interests, the Presidency has decided to initiate an internal disciplinary process against Ms Diko.

The relevant processes prescribed in the Public Service Regulations and related documents will be triggered and handled by the Acting Director-General of the Presidency.

Mr Tyrone Seale will, until further notice, continue as the acting spokesperson for the President.
