The media and the politico-legal society got hyped up when Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane, released a CIEX report that recommended amongst others the constitutional amendment of the role of the SA Reserve Bank and an intriguing request for any social justice enthusiast that ABSA pay up R1,15 Billion for Apartheid era motivated funding. Law Focus this week focusses on the Role and Functions of the constitutionally mandated Public Protector.
On the issue, we interview the Economist Ayabonga Cawe and Dr Cathleen Powell, constitutional law expert. On behalf of the Public Protector’s office, Spokesperson Cleopatra Mosana gives her comment.
The Public Protector: Role and Functions edition of Law focus is produced by Khutso Tsikane. Co-hosted by Nyiko Shikwambane and Basil Sherinda. Technical production by Kutlwano Serame.
