Panel Finds There’s Enough Evidence To Impeach Mkhwebane

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane may soon have to fight for her job.

This follows findings by the Independent Review Panel that Parliament has a prima facie case against her.

National Assembly Speaker Thandi Modise appointed the panel to conduct a preliminary assessment, and to determine whether there is prima facie evidence, showing misconduct or that Mkhwebane is incompetent.

The DA brought a motion to have Mkhwebane impeached last year due to several court judgments made against her and some of her reports.

The public protector would be the first head of a Chapter 9 institution to be impeached.
