WRAP | Mkhwebane removed as Public Protector

Busisiwe Mkhwebane became the first Public Protector to be removed from her post.

The National Assembly voted on Monday, with 318 votes for her removal and 43 against her removal, achieving the required two-thirds majority.

This followed an arduous Section 194 impeachment process, which culminated last month in several findings against her.

The Section 194 Committee found her guilty of misconduct and incompetence and recommended her removal.
