Public Protector Thuli Madonsela is reaching the end of her term later this year. John Robbie on Tuesday asked listeners about a preferred successor.
Most people would like to see Madonsela extending her term in office (although this is not allowed), while others said her deputy, Kevin Malunga, would be an ideal candidate. There were some other interesting suggestions too.
