This comes after Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane, has determined that Zille violated the code of ethics by using her position to secure tablets for her son's programme at a Khayelitsha school in 2014.

Briefly.co.za reported that the complaint had been brought forward by Cameron Dugmore, an ANC member of the Western Cape legislature, in 2017.
