Busisiwe Mkhwebane launches fightback with challenge to ‘unfair’ high court ruling
The public protector is facing the prospect of a parliamentary inquiry into her fitness to hold office
Public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has launched a fightback against one of her detractors’ most powerful pieces of ammunition against her — the scathing high court ruling that found she had "failed the people of this country" by turning a blind eye to irregularities in the Gupta-linked Estina dairy farm scam.

Mkhwebane is facing the prospect of a parliamentary inquiry into her fitness to hold office, and the damning ruling by judge Ronel Tolmay is very likely to be used as a strong basis to argue for her removal.
