Gauteng Premier David Makhura fired Masuku after the SIU found irregular PPE (personnel protection equipment) tenders happened on his watch.

He's also suspended from performing any duties for the ANC in Gauteng.

In a statement, Masuku says he's endured an onslaught of unfounded allegations against him for the past three months.
