The African National Congress recently welcomed the motion to start the process for Busisiwe Mkhwebane's removal. However, numerous citizens felt this was a shady move from the party who serves to benefit the most from her demise.
The ANC recently released a statement welcoming Parliament's decision to begin the complex process to remove the Public Protector.
Briefly.co.za reported that Parliament has set out to provide the framework for removing someone in Busiswe Mkhwebane's positions, something which has never been done before.
