Public Protector to name and shame organs of state that defy her remedial action directives

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane is planning to name and shame dozens of organs of state that defy her remedial action directives.

According to her office, there are more than 50 cases where her directives have not been implemented and judicial reviews have not been sought to have the implementations suspended in those cases.

"The thousands of people who turn up at our doorstep do so as a last resort, having tried their best to find justice on their own. Worse, these are mostly people who would never take the state to court due to the prohibitive financial costs involved," she explained.
