Former Parliament's Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa) chairperson Themba Godi says there is a perceived injustice that is happening to Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane. He has, therefore, pledged to help her raise money to pay her cost order.
The Constitutional Court upheld a personal costs order made against her following an earlier ruling by the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria.
The court found that Mkhwebane must be held personally liable for part of the Reserve Bank's legal fees after the two parties went to court over the Public Protector's Absa/Bankorp report.
To discuss this fundraising initiative, Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala Show chats to Godi.
People have expressed support towards her, but that support needs to be demonstrated practically. We are trying to defend and advance a principle that says: " State institution must not be abused in terms of how they are criticised, they must not be factionalised and they must be protected."— Themba Godi, Former chairperson - Scopa
