Government did not fire DCEC Deputy Directors

The Ministry of Defence, Justice and Security has noted with deep concern a recent newspaper article headlined “Government fires two DCEC Deputy Directors”, which falsely alleges that the Government took the decision to sack the two DCEC Deputy Directors supposedly on the basis of their performance.
For the record we wish the public to know that neither of the two individuals referred to were fired, but rather in each case resigned for their own personal reasons.
The Ministry wishes to further assure the general public that the DCEC carries out its mandate without any interference, be it political or otherwise, in conducting its investigations.
In this respect, we also wish to further place on record that neither of the two individuals referred to in the article was the Chief Investigator in the case concerning the former Minister, Dikgakgamatso Ndelu Seretse, as was also falsely alleged.
