Mkhwebane is 'under siege' – Shivambu

- | 5 months ago

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) deputy president Floyd Shivambu has written a column in Sunday’s edition of City Press suggesting that the office of the public protector is “under siege” and calling on “all citizens” to join the party’s campaign to protect it.

According to Shivambu, there are parallels between the way current public protector Busisiswe Mkhwebane and her predecessor Thuli Madonsela are being treated. “Madonsela was attacked and undermined by members of cabinet, MPs and journalist to protect a president who was a constitutional delinquent,” he writes.

He says the EFF defended her because it was their duty to do so due to their oath of office and must now do so again in the case of Mkhwebane.
