Here Is Why Mkhwebane's Suspension Would Be Punitive.

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane said that if she were suspended from office in response to a forthcoming request, it would be "corrective" and have an effect on her "poise."

In the Western Cape High Court on Wednesday, Advocate Dali Mpofu, who is Mkhwebane's lawful agent, presented this line of thinking.

The Public Protector was present in court once more to carry on with her defense against a request made by parliament.

Mkhwebane appeared before the Western Cape High Court once again after the application had been postponed one month prior due to an advancement in her rescission application that was excused by the Constitutional Court.

Her legal representative, Mpofu, continued with his entries in the High Court, where Mkhwebane argued that the parliamentary request was tainted with corruption.

Mpofu focused his attention on the possibility that Mkhwebane would be suspended and argued that this would be an extremely unfair advantage for her.

"The suspension of anyone, including Advocate Mkhwebane or an appointed authority, or a president, or whatever," he said, "is all by itself reformatory." [Citation needed]

Mpofu additionally informed the court of an additional rescission application that would be submitted soon. He argued that the High Court application ought to be suspended "where there is plausible" that a decision might be reversed.

The conference is currently ongoing.
