Public Protector BusisiweMkhwebane says she will never step down from her position until she......

Public Protector BusisiweMkhwebane says she will never step down from her position until she completes her term of office. The Public Protector has faced heavy backlash from some political parties, with the DA calling for her to be removed. Mkhwebane recently released a report on her findings on various cases, some which include political figures. Mkhwebane was speaking in an exclusive interview with the SABC: "I will complete my term. I have been appointed for the next seven years. I will not step down. Hence I'm saying, the constitution is very clear to remove the Public Protector, you need to prove that she is incompetent and it will be interesting to know what criteria are they going to use to say that a person is incompetent." Mkhwebane says her report on Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan is aimed at achieving fiscal stability. Mkhwebane had found that Gordhan violated the Constitution when he approved the early pension payout for former SARS official, Ivan Pillay. Mkhwebane then instructed President Cyril Ramaphosa to take disciplinary action against Gordhan. Gordhan has hit back at the report, and will be taking the it on review.
