Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has accused the SABC of being biased in its reporting about her office.

Mkhwebane was speaking during a panel discussion titled, “How South Africa’s media told my story” at the launch of the University of the Western Cape’s (UWC) Media Society at its Bellville campus.

Mkhwebane says media houses are in collusion and have separated the person from the office she holds. She says she is not playing a victim when she says she is being unfairly portrayed in the media.

During her speech she blamed the media of having ulterior motives. She also accused the SABC of interrogating her during television interviews and not giving her office a chance to to tell their side of the story.
