The Public Protector, Busiswe Mkhwebane will know her fate after President Cyril Ramaphosa finishes studying representations in her letter.
In March, Ramaphosa had written to Mkhwebane requesting her to give him reasons why he should not suspend her.
But Mkhwebane argued against the legality of the letter and is fighting the possible suspension in court.
Reaction to Mkhwebane impeachment matter: Reitumetse Phiri
The Speaker of the National Assembly has confirmed that a decision has been taken to continue with the consideration of the motion for Mkhwebane’s removal from office under section 194 of the Constitution.
Mkhwebane’s spokesperson Oupa Segalwe has conceded that they succumbed to pressure to submit the letter.
“The public protector’s correspondence was, however, sent under protest. She reserves her rights in this regard. This is based on her belief that the letter in question will only be due after a decision on her two-part application in the Western Cape High Court in which President Ramaphosa, the Chairperson of the Section 194 Committee Richard Dyantyi and the Speaker of the National Assembly Hon. Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula are among the respondents.”
