Briefly.co.za learned that the opposition party wants to force its preferred results of the probe on Mkhwebane, and is abusing the courts to do so, Advocate Vuyani Ngalwana told the court.

Ngalwana said the DA is using the court to act as its conduit.

According to the DA, the Public Protector's discoveries were not duly reasoned or justified. The party believed her findings copy the discoveries made by Treasury's accountant general.

Also, the DA said it believed the corrective action doesn't and can't be expected to undo the prejudice, impropriety, illegal enrichment and corruption linked to the project.

The court reserved judgement in the matter.
