Johannesburg - The axe is still hovering over Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane's head, with some MPs pressing on with a bid to have her removed from office four years before her term of office expires.
On Tuesday, they indicated that there was no reason to delay the process, adding that it had to be expedited as a matter of urgency.
The ANC study group in the justice committee said it supported the body’s decision to refer the matter of Mkhwebane’s removal to the rules committee to develop rules for a proper process that would be followed in the future.
ANC member and the committee’s whip, Hishaam Mohamed, said the process had to be fair and transparent.
Mkhwebane has come under pressure from Parliament with opposition parties demanding that she be fired.
