Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has suffered yet another blow from the High Court, this time over her report into Bapo Ba Mogale's missing millions. Mkhwebane will reveal the way forward after studying the ruling, which saw portions of her report set aside.
Busisiwe Mkhwebane recently had parts of her report into Bapo Ba Mogale's missing millions set aside by the Pretoria High Court.
EWN reports that the court had found parts of the Public Protector's report invalid, directing the remedial action to be reviewed and set aside.
Hugh Eiser, a legal representative of the community, along with Abel Dlamini, administrator in the 2012 matter, had brought the application forward.
The report contained adverse findings against both of them for their involvement in the matter concerning the community's missing funds.
Dlamini had been accused of paying massive amounts towards the construction of Bapo Ba Mogale Palace, which set the community back R100 million, far more than the R29 million allocated to the project.
Eiser, who was accused of being interdicted from representing the community, claims that Mkhwebane should never have opposed their application, commenting:
“She must be stopped. This waste of taxpayer’s money must be stopped.”
In reaction to this latest defeat, Mkhwebane will be announcing her course of action after studying the ruling.
