EFF leader Julius Malema has called on South Africans to constructively evaluate the new Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane, and not attack her blindly.
Malema stated this while speaking outside Parliament on Wednesday. He said Busisiwe must be given enough time to prove to the country that she is not pro-Zuma protector, as alleged by the blue block and some other critics.
Malema said one of the essential reasons why she must be keenly observed is because she just inherited a new office, which calls for acclimatization and few adjustments.
He vowed to expose and make the new Public Protector’s tenure miserable if she uses the dignified office to protect President Jacob Zuma, friends, and her allies.
“I think we should give her a chance. She is inheriting an institution, and even if she made commitments to [President Jacob] Zuma and friends that she will do work for them in the PP office, she is going to be exposed,” he said.
” if the new Public Protector engages in any shenanigans, the country will push her out of the office prematurely,” he added.
In her first interview as PP, she emphasized that an investigation into the state capture will not be her priority – a statement that raised eyebrows and concerns that she has or might likely be captured soon.
