“The latest court ruling will end Mkhwebane’s disastrous chapter in office”

The Demo­c­ra­t­ic Alliance (DA) has slammed Pub­lic Pro­tec­tor, Advo­cate Busisi­we Mkhwe­nane as being biased and pro Zuma camp, not fit for office, say­ing her appoint­ment was polit­i­cal­ly spurred.

In a state­ment on Tues­day DA Leader, John Steen­huisen alleges that Mkwe­bane has all along been a state cap­ture deploy­ment.

“Suc­ces­sive court rul­ings against her. Pho­tos of known state cap­ture agents at her 50th birth­day par­ty, sup­port the DA’s long-held view that Mkhwe­bane isn’t fit for office, that her appoint­ment was polit­i­cal­ly moti­vat­ed. We align her to the pro-Zuma fac­tion,” said Steen­huisen.

Steen­huisen com­ment fol­lows the North Gaut­eng High Court Judge’s rul­ing on Tues­day that the inves­ti­ga­tion by Advo­cate Mkwe­bane into CR 17 elec­tion cam­paign dona­tion is invalid on sev­er­al grounds and must be set aside.

The court said Mkhwe­bane neglect­ed to under­stand her juris­dic­tion and effec­tive­ly apply the law and eval­u­ate the evi­dence before her.

“Yet again, the courts have found Mkhwe­bane can’t per­form her respon­si­bil­i­ties in a com­pe­tent, fair and unbi­ased man­ner. We hope this brings to an end her dis­as­trous chap­ter in office. The DA has fought it, ever since her name was first put for­ward as a poten­tial can­di­date for appoint­ment,” said Steen­huisen.

Steen­huisen said the DA has tabled a motion in the Nation­al Assem­bly to have her removed from office.

“We hope this lat­est court find­ing will be the evi­dence need­ed to swing the bal­ance of opin­ion and pres­sure in favour of remov­ing Mkwe­bane. Our motion led to the Speaker’s com­mit­ment to appoint an inde­pen­dent pan­el to assess the evi­dence against her. If the pan­el finds a pri­ma facie case of mis­con­duct or incom­pe­tence, then an ad hoc com­mit­tee of par­lia­ment will con­sid­er her removal,” added Steen­huisen.
