Tsholofelo, who holds the position of Director (Internal division within the DIS), dragged his boss before court on Wednesday detailing how an instruction from Magosi, which he says he advised the DG against, led to one of the biggest security leakages the country has ever experienced. In the leakage, over 100 covert agents’ names and information were exposed to the public.
