Investigations against the Director General of Directorate of Intelligence and Security Services (DISS) Isaac Kgosi have been completed and his docket has now been handed over to the Directorate on Public Prosecutions (DPP). Appearing before the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) on Friday, the Director General of the Directorate on Corruption and Economic Crime (DCEC), Rose Seretse said the matter now lies with DPP. Seretse could not share what they have discovered during their investigations as the case is confidential and denied that there was some political interference during investigations of  cases which involve high profile subjects. This was contrary to a savinggram she wrote to Kgosi in 2012 when she raised a concern that DISS agents were threatening DCEC assistant Director, Eugene Wasetso. Wasetso was one of the agents who were investigating Kgosi. “I am advised that on Thursday 8th March 2012 you threatened this Directorate’s Senior Assistant Director Mr Wasetso and that known DISS officers have been observed conducting surveillance of DCEC headquarters. I am also advised by my staff that DISS officers have been seen shrivelling DCEC staff performing duties away from DCEC headquarters in the course of this investigation,” reads the letter from Seretse to Kgosi adding that they knew that this was going to be a difficult case to conduct. The docket was first handed to DPP in 2014 but was sent back to DCEC who have since taken it back to DPP for prosecution. Though DPP and government officials have denied that the Office of the President is against the prosecution of the spy chief, inside sources have revealed that the opposite is the truth. Kgosi has faced allegations of various corruption claims. However, it is not clear which charges will the DPP press against him.
