Former President Jacob Zuma attempted to defend himself in the way he set up the Zondo commission, former Public Protector Thuli Madonsela says. But its not all politics for the former Public Prosecutor who spoke to News24 about problems at the Public Protector's office, and what the EFF’s limitation is. Madonsela also has a new title - that of children's author.
In the dark days of state capture, when social media bots and propaganda campaigns were used to distract from the billions of taxes stolen for personal gain, then Public Protector (PP) Thuli Madonsela was a lonesome light which sparked a glimmer of hope among South Africans.
It was Madonsela, who as former PP ordered former President Jacob Zuma to repay for the upgrades to his Nkandla homestead, while cabinet ministers tried to defend his swimming pool as a water reservoir for firefighting.
