Former ANC MP Vytjie Mentor has dropped a bombshell on the incumbent Public Protector. Mentor always uses social media to entertain South Africans.
This time, the famous whistle blower has predicted that Public Protector Mkhwebane will be removed from her position before her term ends.
Mentor took to her Facebook page on Monday, claiming that Mkhwebane is a Gupta- appointee, revealing that she would be pushed out before her time.
“Busisiwe [Mkhwebane] is going to be the very first public protector that will be removed from office before her term ends,” she claimed.
Advocate Mkhwebane has been criticised for protecting Zuma and his allies – especially the Gupta family.
The public protector came under attack for ordering Absa to pay back R1.125 billion for the lifeboat Bankorp received from the Reserve Bank as part of a bailout.
But both Absa and the Reserve Bank said over-reached her constitutional powers.
The Public Protector may be removed from office only on the grounds of misconduct, incapacity or incompetence.
