Judge Tintswalo Makhubele Denies Allegations Of Special Interest In PRASA’s Legal Wrangling

One of the specific allegations against Judge Makhubele is that she pushed for a secret settlement agreement with Siyaya, which could have cost PRASA over R50 million.

Judge Tintswalo Makhubele has vehemently denied allegations of having any special interest in PRASA’s legal disputes with Siyaya, a contractor implicated in state capture, during her tenure as interim board chair at the parastatal.

These allegations were brought forward during her testimony before the Judicial Conduct Tribunal, which is investigating claims of gross misconduct against her.

One of the specific allegations against Judge Makhubele is that she pushed for a secret settlement agreement with Siyaya, which could have cost PRASA over R50 million.

The tribunal’s main task is to determine whether Makhubele showed preferential treatment towards cases involving Siyaya among all the other cases PRASA was involved in. Previous witnesses have testified to her apparent focus on Siyaya-related matters.

However, during her testimony before the tribunal, Judge Makhubele refuted these claims. She stated that her involvement with Mr. Dingiswayo and Ms. Ngoye was in relation to discussions on investigation reports and that the allegation of her exclusive interest in Siyaya matters is incorrect.

The proceedings for the day have concluded, and the case will resume on Friday, with Judge Makhubele still on the stand.

The Judicial Conduct Tribunal plays a crucial role in investigating allegations of misconduct against judges. Its purpose is to ensure the integrity and accountability of the judiciary and to maintain public trust in the legal system.

The outcome of this case will determine whether the allegations against Judge Makhubele hold any merit and if any disciplinary action needs to be taken.
