Johannesburg - The acting director-general at GCIS Phumla Williams believes former president Jacob Zuma protected former minister Faith Muthambi as she wreaked havoc and "looted" at the GCIS.
Williams, who concluded her testimony at the state capture inquiry on Monday, said she wants answers from Muthambi on why she tormented her and left the GCIS dysfunctional and on "auto-pilot".
The government spokesperson detailed how things turned bad shortly after Muthambi was appointed as communications minister in 2014 and the GCIS was mandated to report to her.
Williams said a number of people left the GCIS during Manyi and Muthambi's reign and that the former minister refused to fill in the vacancies.
The difficult relationship between Williams and Muthambi started a few weeks after Muthambi was appointed.
