Like medieval royalty, Mkhwebane also claimed she had been appointed by a higher power, not parliament, to her position.
Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has been slammed after she made claims in a speech to the SA Sheriff’s Society in Mpumalanga on Friday night, that she was placed in her position by God and that only God can remove her. The speech was live-tweeted on the account @PublicProtector, bringing it to the attention of the public.
In the speech which started off in congratulation to newly appointed sheriffs, Mkhwebane became increasingly vitriolic, claiming she had been subject to “the most unfair reporting in the media” and never received a “right of reply” on stories about her.
Seemingly addressing a specific incident, Mkwebane claimed her comments are often ignored for “word count considerations!!!”.
