In March 2021, Mkhwebane became the first head of a Chapter 9 institution to be impeached when the National Assembly adopted a motion to that effect.

According to the committee's timeline, it will start deliberations on the testimony they have heard by the middle of August. A draft report will be compiled and given to Mkhwebane for her consideration.
