JOHANNESBURG - Former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela says she hopes the ministers chosen to probe PPE tender corruption claims are clean themselves.

"I think for a preliminary thing it's a good thing that ministers have been brought together, I just hope the ministers themselves have not been implicated in any way," she said.

"Of course, if you're implicated you are going to make sure that everything ends in a rain dance and nothing moves forward," she said.

President Cyril Ramaphosa appointed an inter-ministerial committee to investigate the corruption claims.

Some government officials have been implicated in corrupt deals.
