Likely new public protector named

2009-09-17 19:33
Cape Town - A special parliamentary committee has recommended the appointment of SA Law Reform Commission member Thulisile Madonsela as public protector to replace outgoing incumbent Lawrence Mushwana.

The ad hoc committee selected Madonsela from a shortlist of eight candidates interviewed earlier this week, and she received the support of all parties on the committee.

The National Assembly will consider the recommendation on September 22, after which it will go to President Jacob Zuma for ratification and appointment.

Madonsela is expected to serve for a non-renewable term of seven years, and will take office before October 15 - the date on which Mushwana's term of office expires.

ANC Chief Whip Mathole Motshekga's office on Thursday said he was confident Madonsela would be equal to the challenge of ensuring the institution continued to contribute meaningfully to the advancement and consolidation of constitutional democracy.

"We once again wish to thank the outgoing public protector advocate Lawrence Mushwana, for the sterling service rendered and wish him well with his future endeavours," a statement said.
