The Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane says she notes with regret the decision of the Parliamentary Section 194 Committee to commence the impeachment enquiry in July 2022.
The Public Protector is on record that any lawful enquiry should proceed as a soon as possible. She is confident that no legitimate enquiry will find her guilty of the charges brought by the Democratic Alliance.
Public Protector Spokesperson Oupa Segalwe said the decision to start an enquiry in the present atmosphere, which is littered with allegations of conflicts of interest, illegality and even alleged corruption and other criminal conduct, is totally unacceptable.
“The outcome of Chief Justice Raymond Zondo’s investigation into allegations of corruption implicating Mr Ismail Abramjee and one or more persons within the Constitutional Court, which will have a huge bearing on all the related processes, should be awaited by all reasonable people and institutions.”
