Is Busisiwe Mkhwebane fit and proper to continue holding office?

Eusebius McKaiser chats to Mazzone and the Public Protector spokesperson Oupa Segalwe to weigh in on the matter.

It is well known that the DA doesn't think that she is competent nor fit and proper to hold office. The DA voted against her being appointed by Parliament and it is my motion that has been brought before the National Assembly and has now been agreed to by the speaker. We are unequivocal that we don't think that the Public Protector is fit and proper to hold office.

Segalwe says the Public Protector has done fairly well in the three years that she has been in office.

From the onset, she has said that she sees her purpose in that office to take the services to the grassroots where she believes her office's interventions are needed.
