pscEWN reports that the Public Service Commission (PSC) has agreed to the Democratic Alliance’s (DA’s) request for an investigation into suspended crime intelligence boss Richard Mdluli's very protracted disciplinary process.  

Mdluli was suspended in 2011 following his arrest on charges related to the 18-year-old murder of Oupa Ramogibe.  Since then, he has been earning a full salary with benefits, costing the taxpayer around R8.3 million.  The PSC will investigate why, after six years, a disciplinary process has not yet been concluded.  DA MP Zak Mbhele welcomed the step, saying it was a clear case of maladministration and a waste of public funds.
