'If I were Mkhwebane I would just resign'
The Public Service Association (PSA) has called on Parliament to launch an investigation into alleged maladministration at the Public Protector's office.
This apparently follows the suspension and dismissal of senior executives and investigators.
The association also wants an investigation into the 2018 appointment of Vussy Mahlangu as the institution's CEO.
General manager of the association Tahir Maepa says the appointment signals a disregard of government policies.
It means that the public protector disregarded the policies of government and of her office by taking such a person to be at the helm of the public protector's office.Tahir Maepa, General manager - PSA
This public protector, if I were her... I would just resign because now we are going through all these headaches and in-between people are suffering due to the crossfire and a lot of our members who are refusing to be coerced into doing wrong things are being dismissed and families are being systematically destroyed.Tahir Maepa, General manager - PSA
This public protector has put that office into shame.Tahir Maepa, General Manager - PSA
We believe that if the speaker of Parliament were to institute this particular investigation, more things are going to come out because currently people are afraid because of her attitude.Tahir Maepa, General Manager - PSA
