It is clear to many of us that both the approach made to the Chair of the Police Service Commission by an unnamed public official and her subsequent actions were questionable and probably involved breaches of the Constitution. Admirably, she has resigned. She is due our gratitude and thanks for that.
I can sympathise with the Chair to the extent that the unnamed public official probably made the Chair feel intimidated. I have already asked who is the unnamed official who so blatantly interfered with the performance of her duty. He or she must be unmasked and his/her identity revealed to us.
There is already a widespread perception of covert dealings by persons in public life. The reported and unrefuted accounts of events also implicate the Office of the President. Full disclosure of who and what was involved at the incident in President’s House on 12 August 2021 is necessary to remove (if it can) the dark clouds hovering over institutional independence and propriety.
No further cover-up should be tolerated.
