Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane.
Jan Gerber, News24

The spokesperson for the Public Protector, Oupa Selgawe, has written a response to a column by Karyn Maughan, denying that Busiswe Mkhwebane is averse to being held to account.

I write in reply to a column authored by Karyn Maughan and carried by News24 on Tuesday, 9 November 2021, under the headline "Delay, delay, delay – Inside the Public Protector's court bid to avoid impeachment".

The purpose is to refute the false premise that, in going to court over the constitutionality or otherwise of the rules in terms of which Parliament set in motion the process for her removal from office, Public Protector Adv. Busisiwe Mkhwebane is ducking accountability and kicking the process into touch.
