GLOVES ON:Public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane keeps on the fight

18 May 2022

By Sphe J Hadebe

Mkhwebane keeps her gloves on and carries with the fight, she is definitely not going down without a fight.

The public protector, Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane may lose her job but she will always be remembered as a strong, bold, determined and ofcourse a heroine person.

For the first time in history that a public protector faces so many court challenges in her work and ofcourse losing all cases against Cyril Ramaphosa or those who are his allies.

She has lost a lot against Ramaphosa where she was probing sealed CR17 bank statements. These are the bank statements belonging to the ANC president, Cyril Ramaphosa which shows the transactions made in his 2017 ANC presidency campaign.

There could be something very serious that Cyril is hiding in it as he wants to make sure that the contents inside are not revealed to the public.

The bank statements would show who paid money to his elective campaign and whom did he pay. There are allegations that those who donated to his ANC presidency campaign have been rewarded generously with tenders in the government. However, the truth will remain hidden as the courts are making sure that the statement is not touched at all.

Last year June,the public protector and the EFF lost in the Constitutional court in a bid to have the bank statements unsealed.

There were cases where the public protector was probing Cyril Ramaphosa's allies which includes Pravin Gordhan and Oscar Mabuyane. We all know the outcome of that, she lost the case.

Now, she is facing impeachment and it looks like she is going down as the parliament is set to go ahead with the probe to her fitness to hold office.

However, Mkhwabane is still not giving up as she is more determined than ever. On Wednesday, she headed to Western Cape High Court to continue her fight against a parliamentary inquiry.
