Committee to decide on new Public Protector today
Parliament’s ad hoc committee tasked with finding a new Public Protector is today expected to decide on a candidate to replace Thuli Madonsela.
Last week the committee cut down the 14 remaining candidates to five.
The five candidates are judges Siraj Desai and Sharise Weiner, advocates Busisiwe Mkhwebane, Muvhango Lukhaimane, and Professor Bongani Majola.
Whoever receives the most support will be tabled for endorsement in the National Assembly by August 31.
Madonsela’s seven-year term ends in mid-October.
