Helen Zille has criticised her successor for his stance against Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane.

TimesLIVE reports that this comes after Maimane commented on the DA's relationship with the Public Protector.

Maimane had been pleased with her adverse findings against President Cyril Ramaphosa, but had been adamant that Mkhwebane should be removed.

The DA head had added that the recent Constitutional Court judgment against her had strengthened their case to see her go.

Zille has lambasted these comments, saying that Maimane cannot enjoy her findings at the same time he seeks to have her dethroned:

"When you have a compromised state, when you have a captured state and we believe that the Public Protector has been captured by a faction of the ANC, which is very unfortunate because the Public Protector should do her job without fear or favour."

Briefly.co.za reported that the Constitutional Court had ruled against Mkhwebane over her ABSA/Bankorp 'misgivings', ordering her to pay an estimated R900 000 in costs.
