The panel appointed to look into the Mkhwebane matter was appointed by the Speaker, he says.

its job is to conduct a preliminary inquiry to assess the motion submitted by the chief whip of the Democratic Alliance for the removal of the Public Protector and determine whether there is evidence showing that Mkhwebane has engaged in misconduct.
