We hear from the incoming Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane.WATCH

Cape Town – New Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane and her team are due to brief Parliament on the entity’s annual performance for the 2015/16 financial year on Wednesday.

Mkhwebane reported for her first day of duty on Monday, after advocate Thuli Madonsela’s term ended.

The annual report was the last one Madonsela submitted to Parliament.

Mkhwebane might have to field questions on the contentious "state capture" report, which Madonsela completed and gave to Parliament for safe keeping on Friday.

Parliament returned it to the Public Protector’s office when Mkhwebane assumed her duties.

During the 2015/16 financial year, the public protector’s office handled 17 374 cases, of which 12 735 were finalised and 4251 carried over to the new financial year.

The institution, which pleaded for more money from Parliament in 2015, improved its finances and achieved a surplus of R17.8 million compared to R7.6m surplus the year before.

The accumulated deficit was reduced from R18m in the 2013/14 financial year to R515 442 at the end of the 2015/16 financial year, according to the annual report.
