PRESS STATEMENT: It is not a practice, neither is it policy for the DCEC to respond to issues that are carried in the media however, we are compelled to straighten misleading and fallacious allegations carried on the Mmegi Online of Friday 30th August 2019 and Mmegi Monitor of Monday 2nd September titled "Morupisi charged with three counts in CMB saga".
This article states that the DCEC was given clearance by His Excellency the President Dr. Mokgweetsi Masisi, to serve Permanent Secretary to the President (PSP) Mr. Carter Morupisi with charges and a court order to appear before the magistrate court on Tuesday 3rd September 2019.
The DCEC would like to state as a matter of fact that we have never requested for any clearance from anyone regarding this matter. The mandate of the DCEC is to investigate allegations of corruption
It is therefore the duty of the DPP to handle the prosecutions aspect of that case and also have the powers to summon and serve individuals with court orders. The DCEC does not require the advice or consent of any person to do its work.
The DCEC would like to thank the public for their continued support in the fight against corruption.
