CAPE TOWN - Suspended Public Protector, Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane has released audio which she claims is evidence that African National Congress (ANC) Members of Parliament offered bribes to drop the impeachment inquiry against her.

In a TimesLIVE audio report, the advocate is heard making a list of five demands in exchange for the Section 194 inquiry into her fitness to hold office being terminated with immediate effect.

The Mail & Guardian reports that Mkhwebane alleges that ANC chief whip Pemmy Majodina, chairperson of the inquiry committee Richard Dyantyi, and the late former minister of mineral resources and energy, Tina Joemat-Pettersson, took part in a R600 000 bribe solicitation.

Former Public Protector calls for South Africans to back her up

She asked “all freedom-loving South Africans to rise in one voice” and support her demands, highlighting that the inquiry is a deliberate waste of taxpayers' money:

"It is never too late to fix the country. Now is the time, if we fail there will be no country left to save for our generations."

Parliament invites nominations for new Public Protector, Mzansi divided

@Thusano14 says nominating is pointless:

"Eish! Mr Moleme, there's no need to nominate. We can't just exploit the names of relevant people for nothing. Cyril will appoint Gcaleka, period. She's been briefed already since she's been seen having coffee with Karyn Maughan."

Suspended PP Busisiwe Mkhwebane to set record straight on R600k extortion allegation against 3 ANC MPs

@NjabsMajola said:

"Waste of time and money, we know who the position is for. Learn from the acting PP interim report."

@DallasMaloca voted for Mkhwebane:

"Is there anything preventing mma @AdvBMkhwebane to take another bite at the cherry?"

@SouthElection disagreed:

"Yes, the nonsense she did with Vrede Dairy Farm investigations. Black beneficiaries who became witnesses were murdered and she chose to shield politicians. She should be kept far far away from any position of power as she’s self-serving."

Briefly News reported that the suspended public protector says she's suffering the effects of investigating powerful people like President Cyril Ramaphosa.

She says the inquiry about her is a slap in the face for trying to hold the president accountable for his actions. Mkhwebane seems to be getting social support from South Africans for trying to fix the country.
