Parliament accepts DA’s new motion “to oust” Mkhwebane

The Demo­c­ra­t­ic Alliance (DA) has on Wednes­day wel­comed a deci­sion by Par­lia­ment, accept­ing its fresh motion pro­ceed­ings to remove Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor, Advo­cate. Busisi­we Mkhwe­bane from office.

“We wel­come the announce­ment by the Speak­er of the Nation­al Assem­bly, Than­di Modise accept­ing our motion for the removal of Advo­cate, Mkhwe­bane,” said  DA Chief Whip, Natasha Maz­zone.

Maz­zone said DA sub­mit­ted a fresh motion last week, and that they are hap­py the process con­tin­ues with­out delay.

Maz­zone clar­i­fied that DA had sub­mit­ted a motion ini­ti­at­ing removal pro­ceed­ings against Mkhwe­bane on Decem­ber 2019, say­ing since then the new evi­dence has come to light to strength­en their case.

“DA believes it’s impor­tant and in the inter­ests of jus­tice and the rule of law that the office of Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor is being occu­pied by a per­son who isn’t fit and prop­er to rep­re­sent South Africans.

“Mkhwe­bane is liable of mis­con­duct or incom­pe­tence on sev­er­al charges. These incor­po­rate the SARB and Esti­na Dairy Farm inves­ti­ga­tions,” said Maz­zone.

She said the DA will put the best case before the inde­pen­dent pan­el to eval­u­ate whether there are grounds to remove her or not.

“We trust that South Africans may soon get rid of a cap­tured Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor, who have done no jus­tice to for the nation,” added Maz­zone.
