Johannesburg - Public Protector Adv. Busisiwe Mkhwebane is considering appealing a North Gauteng High Court ruling on her Vrede Dairy Project report, her office confirmed on Monday.
The court earlier declared her report unlawful, unconstitutional and invalid, with Judge Ronel Tolmay setting it aside.
Monday's judgment followed an application by the DA and the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (Casac) to have the report overturned.
The court application related to the investigation and reporting by Mkhwebane on the Free State’s department of Agriculture Vrede Integrated Dairy Project.
Mkhwebane in a statement said she was still considering the option to "appeal or apply for direct access to the Constitutional Court regarding Monday’s ruling... which she disagrees with fundamentally".
