southafricalogoANA reports that in line with a recommendation by the Public Protector, disciplinary action is to be instituted against National Treasury director-general Dondo Mohajane for lying about his criminal record.  

The Presidency said on Monday that it had delegated the power to institute the disciplinary action to Higher Education Minister Naledi Pandor.  It explained that:  "The President is of the view that the current Minister of Finance, who is required to take ownership of decisions made by his predecessor, may be conflicted in this situation and it would therefore not be appropriate to delegate the power to institute disciplinary actions against Mr Mogajane to the current Minister."  The Presidency added:  "Once Minister Pandor has fulfilled her role, the President has delegated to the Minister of Finance, Mr Tito Mboweni, the authority to implement the outcome of the disciplinary hearing, including, but not limited to, the implementation of the sanction pronounced by the Chairperson of the hearing."  In December last year, Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane found that Mohajane did not disclose his criminal record due to a speeding fine in 2011 in his application forms to become director general.
