He says the deputy public protector is a public office-bearer that is appointed by the president after a parliamentary process.

You are the second in command of the institution of the Public Protector South Africa. The knocks in the courts have affected public perceptions of the credibility of the office.

Kevin Malunga, Deputy Public Protector

In his opinion, there have been horrendous court decisions that affected certain public perceptions but insists those cases are just a small number of cases that the office deals with.

The deputy public protector says he was not part of the Absa report and that is the prerogative of the Public Protector to involve him or not.

I was taken aback by the court decisions and I have called for quality assurance mechanism to be brought back.

Kevin Malunga, Deputy Public Protector
