Madisha, Mr WM to ask the President of the Republic
Whether a certain person (name and details furnished) has the requisite security clearance; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?
The person in question was interviewed by the South African Police Service (SAPS) on or around 22 May 2018, before he was appointed to his current position.
The Presidency has been informed that the person’s security clearance is still being processed. We trust that the SAPS will conclude the matter urgently and make a final determination in this regard in accordance with applicable prescripts.
