She adds people have approached the chapter 9 institution, complaining that they were unfairly denied the monthly R350 special social relief grant.
Speaking to Bongani Bingwa, Mkhwebane says her office has received over 500 COVID-19 related complaints.
Other complaints relate to the procurement of PPEs and places for quarantine where proper processes were not followed. We are also still investigating the Beitbridge border line.Busisiwe Mkhwebane, Public Protector
