Zondo commission should be given limited extension - Mkhwebane


- news24.com | 2 months ago

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane believes the state capture inquiry must be granted an extension for a "prescribed minimal period".

Mkhwebane said this in an affidavit dated February 7 in the application by the commission's chairperson Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo to have its lifespan extended from March 2020 to December 2020.  The Public Protector is the second respondent of eight, including President Cyril Ramaphosa and the EFF, in the matter.

 In her lengthy affidavit, in which she adds that she would abide by the court's decision, Mkhwebane outlines that she is not opposed to having the lifespan of the inquiry expanded based on reasons that it would be "untenable" for it to be terminated on February 28.
