Durban - The president of African Transformation Movement (ATM) Vuyo Zungula says South Africans must now take to the streets as a show of support for Public Protector Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane.

Zungula says the current support for the Public Protector, which is mainly shown through press statements and social media outrage, must now be taken to the streets. 

Zungula made these remarks in Durban on Wednesday where Mkhwebane met with civic organisations to talk about the role of chapter 9 institutions in African ideology and decolonisation.

Zungula added that defending Mkhwebane would send a strong message to those who intend to abuse the constitution. He believes it will send a warning to individuals that any attempt to destroy a public institution would be met with fierce opposition.
