Jacob Zuma Appoints Busisiwe Joyce Mkhwebane As The New Public Protector
Mkhwebane’s nomination as the next public protector was confirmed by the National Assembly almost a month ago‚ and Zuma’s announcement on Thursday morning confirmed its “recommendation”.
Mkhwebane will take over the reins on October 15.
He recommendation came with some controversy after the Democratic Alliance made spy claims about Mkhwebane‚ saying it was “suspicious” that she was “on the payroll” of the State Security Agency.
The African National Congress described this as a “reckless dirty claims…being peddled with impunity without even providing a shred of evidence to back them”.
