Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane in Concourt to reverse North Gauteng High Court order on personal costs

The High Court directed, at the instance of the SA Reserve Bank, that the Public Protector pay 15% of the costs of the Reserve Bank’s review application for the setting aside of her Report in which she had recommended, among other things, that the Reserve Bank recover from ABSA Bank over a Billion Rand that it had given to Bankorp as a “lifeboat”. Bankorp has since been acquired by ABSA Bank. The Public Protector is one of only 6 institutions created in terms of chapter 9 of the Constitution with the stated purpose of “strengthening constitutional democracy in the Republic”. This is argument at the Constitutional Court where the Public Protector seeks to have that order set aside as being unwarranted and in any event undesirable & inappropriate given the constitutional mandate of the Public Protector.

    I keep visiting this section of the site to see if you have uploaded the interview with the Constitutional Court justice that you once tweeted about. When can I expect to see that interview?

      Hello Tankiso. Apologies for the delayed response. I am now in the editing process. I have interviewed 4 justices thus far and want to have 6 before I start uploading. I also prefer that the justices have a final look at the footage before it goes public. Co-ordinating their diaries is the challenge. But I am hoping that we should have the first series of conversations before May. Apologies again for creating an expectation that this may happen sooner.
