WATCH: Analyst compares Thuli Madonsela to Mandela

12 August, 10:04 AM

14 candidates were interviewed for the Public Protector position on Thursday.

Political analyst, Daniel Silke, believes the candidates have big shoes to fill.

Silke says Madonsela has "defined effectively the role of public protector’’ and that replacing her is similar to filling "Nelson Mandela’s shoes." 

Silke likened Madonsela’s demeanour in the role of Public Protector to former president Nelosn Mandela describing her as "soft spoken but pretty hard-nosed and fierce’’.

Madonsela’s seven year term comes to an end in October.
