Madonsela urges Mkhwebane and team to ‘continue to protect the people’
Busisiwe Mkhwebane was on Monday sent well wishes by her predecessor Thuli Madonsela.
The popular Madonsela welcomed the incoming public protector to the hot seat by retweeting a photo of Mkhwebane around a boardroom table.
Adv Thuli Madonsela @ThuliMadonsela3 posted: “Congratulations Adv Busisiwe Mkhwebane @busisiwe02 on assuming office.Blessings as you& @PublicProtector team continue to protect the people”.
One of the first orders of business for Mkhwebane will be the report into state capture Madonsela delayed releasing on Friday after court challenges by President Jacob Zuma and Cooperative Governance Minister Des Van Rooyen.
The report‚ which is believed to contain evidence about their relationships with the politically connected Gupta family‚ is “currently being kept under lock and key in Parliament and will be handed over to the new Public Protector‚ advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane‚ without delay when she assumes office on Monday‚ 17 October 2016”.
