Axed Public Protector COO Basani Baloyi and Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane faced off in the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on Wednesday over Baloyi's axing amid allegations Mkhwebane had acted unconstitutionally.

Baloyi has taken both Mkhwebane and Public Protector CEO Vusi Mahlangu to court over her axing which she said was part of a purge. She also wants the court to declare that Mkhwebane had acted unconstitutionally, violating her obligations towards independence.
