The high court in Pretoria has granted an interim order allowing the presidency a delay in the implementation of the public protector’s remedial action against minister Pravin Gordon.

Both the EFF and Public Protector have been ordered to pay costs. Ramaphosa approached the high court seeking an interim interdict against Mkwebane’s findings.

In her report, Mkhwebane pronounced that Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan unlawfully authorised the early retirement of then SARS deputy commissioner Ivan Pillay.
