Johannesburg - The North Gauteng High Court will on Monday rule on an application to set aside Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane's report on the Estina diary farm project in Vrede, Free State. The court application was brought by the Democratic Alliance (DA) and the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (Casac).

The DA believes Mkhwebane's investigative report of the farm project was a white-wash as implicated politicians were never interviewed and thus escaped scrutiny.

BREAKING NEWS: Public Protector's #Vrede dairy report declared invalid

The Gauteng High Court, Pretoria, has declared Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s report on the Vrede dairy farm project unlawful, unconstitutional and invalid.

Judge Ronel Tolmay, in setting the report aside, declared that in investigating and reporting on the Vrede Dairy Project for purposes of her report dated February 8, 2018, the public protector failed in her duties under the Public Protection Act and the Constitution.

Isn't that 'blackwashed'? I mean we wouldn't want to 'whitewash' something now would we? #colonialismMustfall #EnglishMustFall #Sarcasm.

"The DA has never supported the appointment of this Public Protector.... which was free, fair and open," said Advocate Vuyani Ngalwana.

Ngalwana made this assertion during an application brought by the DA and the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution to have Mkhwebane's report on the Vrede Dairy Farm project reviewed and set aside.

Ngalwana said the court should not grant the DA the application: "The DA wants to remove her from office and is using the courts to get it's way."

Democratic Alliance (DA) federal executive chairperson, James Selfe, on Wednesday, disputed claims made by Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane's legal representative that the party's criticism was politically motivated.
Court just said no to the anc protector.

This is now the third time the high court has handed her ass to her on a silver platter, reserve bank/constitution, absa bank and now this. She's a fscking disgrace.
