Cape Town - The justice committee is on Tuesday discussing the request by the official opposition to remove Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane.
DA chief whip John Steenhuisen wrote to Speaker Thandi Modise a few weeks ago and the latter referred the matter to the justice committee to take a decision.
This is the third time the DA has tabled a motion to remove the public protector. The first two attempts failed because there was no support from the ruling party.
However, the committee is meeting again on Tuesday to decide on the request. But the matter is likely to be referred to the rules committee to take a decision.
At the meeting of the programming committee last week Modise said they need to draw up a process to be followed when deciding on the issue of removal.
