Advocate Dali Mpofu who is leading the legal team representing Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane on her fight against suspension argued that president Cyril Ramaphosa is not allowed by law to do anything in relation to the suspension of Mkhwebane.
Mpofu dealing with the possible conflict of interest with regards to president Cyril Ramaphosa stemming from investigations into the president said he is "legally disqualified" from initiating a suspension to Mkhwebane who is investigating him.
Pertaining the leaked SMS about the Constitutional Court judgment, advocate Dali Mpofu says it was to influence the Western Cape High Court which was preparing to hear her interdict application to stop parliament inquiry.
"It was a deliberate act of criminality and corruption," he said.
Mpofu want president Cyril Ramaphosa to recuse himself from the process of the possible suspension of Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane.
Critics however feel that this case might be unwinnable, but Dali Mpofu is trying to pull the strings so that the verdict can be delayed.
