Corruption Watch wants more transparency and public participation in the appointment process of a new public protector in 2016

The anti-corruption non-profit organisation on Monday launched a public awareness campaign called Bua Mzansi to highlight the public protector's role. The campaign aims to develop and use technology that will enable the public to nominate and engage with potential candidates and ensure that they are properly scrutinised.

It also aims to make participation in the process easier through the use of a crowd-voting application that will seek to influence the president’s decision on the selection of the new public protector.
