In her ongoing legal battle against the legitimacy of the investigation launched to evaluate her suitability to hold office, suspended Public Protector Busisiwe Mkwebane has been dealt another setback by the Constitutional Court.
The court determined that there were no legal obstacles to the ongoing of this investigation.
Additionally, Mkhwebane received a personal expense order.
However, she won’t stop there.
The matter is currently before the African Court, she said, noting that another counsel had taken it because he had appearance rights there.
Mkhwebane sat in the hearing and listened to a senior member of her staff describe how unrealistic timelines were imposed and how they were pushed into completing reports that had not undergone quality assurance.
Ponatshego Mogaladi, executive manager of investigations, claims that the Public Protector threatened her.
She claims that Mkhwebane tried to fire her because she didn’t meet her goals.
Cross-examination of Mogaladi keeps going.
