The Constitutional Court ordered that she join to the matter as a third respondent, and Madonsela has until the end of October to file court papers.

Listen to the full conversation (with John Webb standing in) on CapeTalk's Breakfast with Kieno Kammies:

Madonsela said the legal battle could provide clarity on the authority of the Public Protector's office.

We will participate in arguments. Our main concern is to ensure that the court arrives at a correct decision regarding the powers of the Public Protector.
