Sparks flew during the parliamentary inquiry into suspended public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane's fitness to hold office.
Mkhwebane’s lawyer, advocate Dali Mpofu, was cross-examining the third witness Sphelo Samuel.
Mpofu questioned Samuel: “You undermine or underestimate advocate Mkhwebane — correct?”
“No, it’s not correct,” said Samuel.
Mpofu: “You think she’s not intellectually fit for her job?”
Samuel: “Yes, I do.”
Mpofu: “You think she’s intimidated by the likes of you?”
Samuel: “That is my belief.”
