According to sections nine and 11 of the act it is a crime to insult the public protector, he said, adding that any person found guilty could be fined R40 000 or sentenced to a year in prison.
The case was opened at the Brooklyn police station in Pretoria.
Station spokesperson Colette Weilbach could not immediately be reached for comment, nor could provincial police spokesperson Lungelo Dlamini.
On Tuesday, Mantashe told reporters Madonsela was abusing her office and trying to get the media’s attention by saying things that were not in any report or being investigated.
Mantashe said Madonsela’s conduct prejudiced the work of Parliament and its committees.
“That is why we are not attacking the public protector or her office but we are attacking the behaviour that is wrong,” he said.
Mantashe said it had become a norm that all public protector reports were leaked to the media before she had released them.
Duarte said Madonsela’s attitude was that she was superior to the Constitution and Parliament, and above all institutions in the country.
The two were reacting to a letter Madonsela reportedly wrote to President Jacob Zuma last week about the R246m spent on upgrades at his private Nkandla homestead in KwaZulu-Natal.
In her letter she reportedly cautioned him that he was second-guessing her recommendations that he repay part of the money spent on features unrelated to security, such as a swimming pool, cattle kraal, amphitheatre, and visitors’ centre.
In his reply to Madonsela’s report on Nkandla, Zuma indicated that Police Minister Nathi Nhleko should determine if he should repay any of the money.”
This news in another example of the typical attitude done by the ANC in several situations. In this case the ANC secretary general, Gwede Mantashe, and his deputy Jessie Duarte insulted publicly the Public Protector Thuli Madonsela. It’s consists in an abuse of power and a disrespect against the South African constitution and the South African parliament and being also a lack of education. In a constitutional democracy as South Africa is, or atleast should be, this kind of insults of politicians against a Public Protector are simply unacceptable and it is a sign that South Africa is not a true democracy but is still a flawed democracy. The ANC and not Madonsela is the one with an attitude superior to the parliament and the constitution. The Afriforum has a protect of a democratic South Africa opened this case against the ANC with all the right. This christian afrikaner civil-rights organisation has been doing since it’s foundation in 2006 a good work in protecting the Boer-Afrikaner people, denouncing the discrimination that the whites suffer in South Africa done by the Afirmative Action politics of the ANC and the racist statements of politicians like Julius Malema and other members of his EFF party. It is also a big supporter of the Afrikaans language. Besides the insults of Mantashe and Duarte towards the Public Protector Madonsela we can see the megalomaniac of President Zuma made at excess of public money that came from the tax-payers. And make a pool, a cattle kraal, an amphitheatre and a visitors center in their own house in something that is very expensive and should not be done with public money. So it’s perfectly normal that Madonsela recommended Zuma to repay part of the money spent on those features unrelated with security. In our opinion all the money spent in features unrelated with security should be repay. President Zuma has a spending problem and a man as him should not be president of any country or have any important public functions. And thus Gwede Manthase and Jessie Duarte hastened in defending their beloved leader by all means in an attitude typical of a dictatorship not of a democracy.
South Africa as a country needs to get rid of the ANC because all of harm that already cause to the country and may cause in the future. A party with a leader as Zuma or a secretary general as Mantashe cannot govern a country. The Boer-Afrikaners as a people need to build an alternative that congregates all of them and even some other people to make it’s interests be heard with the main goal of a Volkstaat and with the more close goal of stop the discrimination that the whites suffer in South Africa.
