Spokesperson Oupa Segalwe says Sphelo Samuel disclosures are not made in good faith as he is facing disciplinary action.

Public Protector's office in the Free State representative Sphelo Samuel is calling for Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane's conduct to be investigated.

These allegations come at the back of a Parliamentary process aimed at removing Mkhwebane from office.

Samual and Public Protector spokesperson Oupa Segalwe join Bongani Bingwa to weigh in on the matter.

I am asking Parliament to intervene in the conduct of Mkhwebane. It needs to look into the mismanagement of state funds by litigating recklessly.

Sphelo Samuel, Free State representative - Public Protector's office

In most cases, when she litigates, it is solely to pursue her own personal or political gains, he explains.

Segalwe says the Public Protector is of the view that these disclosures are not made in good faith by Samual.

He has come forward with this disclosure at the time he is facing disciplinary action. Mr Samual was found guilty by a court of law for assaulting a complainant.
