CAPE TOWN: Pressure is mounting on President Cyril Ramaphosa to fire Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba.

The Centre for Constitutional Rights is the latest group to add its voice to calls for President make a decision.

The organisation believes Gigaba’s position has become untenable considering his numerous controversies.

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane this week released a report which found he lied under oath in court in relation to a legal battle with Fireblade Aviation.

The centre’s Rebecca Sibanda said, “As a minister, you are expected to abide by the Constitution and all the other courts that govern your function.”
