Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba says he will consider a transfer from another department or advertise the post of his department’s Director-General Mkhuseli Apleni’s position as early as this weekend.
Apleni has confirmed that he has resigned and he’ll join the Discovery Bank from August the first. He made the confirmation at a media briefing.
He approached the courts last year when then Minister Hlengiwe Mkhize suspended him, claiming that he was unstable and had undermined the department.
Apleni appears to have put it behind him. “Life is not a bed of roses, it’s got its ups and downs. But what is important is to look forward. So, I think I was supported by everyone.”
