Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has indicated that she will not follow in the footsteps of former president Jacob Zuma by resigning, saying she remains committed to serving the country in her current post.

This came few weeks after the President resigned. While lots of people thought she was loyal to the former president, her new statement seems to have changed that perception.

She has been called out several times by the opposition for allegedly helping Zuma to evade prosecution on several occasions.

Mkhwebane’s report came under serious fire for not probing key players in the failed dairy project, including the Gupta brothers and Free State Premier and ANC secretary general Ace Magashule .

She was faced with a serious grilling on Tuesday at the National Assembly.

Mkhwebane’s report came under serious fire for not probing key players in the failed dairy project, including the Gupta brothers and Free State Premier and ANC secretary general Ace Magashule.

During a round of questions, Economic Freedom Fighters MP Sam Matiase said Mkhwebane should do the honourable thing and follow Zuma’s example by handing in her resignation.

“Honourable Matiase indicated I should do a good thing and resign like the former president,” she responded.

“I must indicate, I committed to serve South Africans in this particular aspect, and the process was a transparent process to appoint a Public Protector.
