Thuli Madonsela would not even consider taking over the "poisoned chalice” as the National Prosecuting Authority boss.
The news of her unwillingness to become the next NPA head was shared on Wednesday by her daughter, Wenzile Madonsela Msimanga.
Speaking to The Citizen, Wenzile added her mom believed in following her God given calling and not taking a space that was never hers to begin with.
Wenzile added her mother was more than willing to do various task with the ruling party on policies or provincial legislature on legislation, she would even work with higher education institutions, but Madonsela refused to limit herself to only one specific job.
Wenzile's statements followed the country expressing their hope that the former public protector would fill the shoes of Shaun Abrahams, who was ordered by the court to vacate the post.
As Briefly.co.za reported previously, South Africans took to social media to nominate their preferred candidates to take over from Abrahams and Madonsela was without a doubt the people's choice.
So, those rooting for Madonsela to be the next NPA boss would be disappointing by Wenzile's revelation.
