Making headlines:
Mcebo Dlamini to apply for bail
'State capture' report delivered to Public Protector
And, Gordhan, Ntlemeza, Moyane given representations deadline



Former Wits University SRC president and Fees Must Fall leader Mcebo Dlamini is expected to apply for bail when he appears in the Johannesburg Magistrate's Court today.


Dlamini made his first appearance in court yesterday, on charges of malicious damage to property, theft, assault, and public violence.

Prosecutor Steven Rubin said the State needed the postponement to verify his address.
He was arrested at his residence at Wits University on Sunday morning.

National Assembly secretary Masibulele Xaso personally delivered the “state capture” report to the public protector’s office on Monday.

Xaso hand-delivered the report in Pretoria, where the new Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane, took over from Thuli Madonsela. Xaso said he received confirmation that it had been received.

The report was kept under lock and key in Parliament after Madonsela sent it there for safe keeping. But on Friday, Parliament said the report would be sent back to the public protector.


National Director of Public Prosecutions Shaun Abrahams has invited Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan to make representations to him today.

The invite was also extended to Hawks head Berning Ntlemeza and Sars commissioner Tom Moyane.

The National Prosecuting Authority on Monday confirmed the invitation, despite Gordhan’s public pronouncement that he would not be making representations.

The three had until 5pm today to send their representations.

Abrahams announced last week that Gordhan, former Sars deputy commissioner Ivan Pillay and former commissioner Oupa Magashula would be charged with fraud in relation to an early retirement pay-out granted to Pillay in 2010, and the extension of his contract.

They are expected to appear in the Pretoria Regional Court on November 2.
