Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane says certain questions need to be asked around of the independence of the judiciary in South Africa.
The office of the Public Protector says it will challenge a ruling by the High Court in Pretoria which found that Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane failed the people of the country, in the manner in which she dealt with her investigation into the Estina Dairy Farm project.
Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s office says it will seek leave to appeal the ruling of the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria.
Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has warned that the recent court judgments against her will negatively affect the operations of her office.
The Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane says she will seek leave to appeal the ruling of the High Court in Pretoria that she should pay 7.5% of the costs in her personal capacity and her office 85% in the case which relates to her Vrede dairy farm report which was previously set aside as unconstitutional.
