ANC Chief Whip Pemmy Majodina Supports Dismissal of Public Protector Mkhwebanei. Wthin South African politics, Pemmy Majodina, the Chief Whip of the African National Congress (ANC), has publicly endorsed the dismissal of Public Protector Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane. This confirmation comes amidst growing speculation and discussions about Mkhwebane’s future in her role.
Recently, a journalist named Athi sought clarification from the ANC regarding their stance on Advocate Mkhwebane. Athi pointed out that prominent ANC member Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma had taken a stance against party policy on the Phala Phala issue, raising questions about her absence during recent hearings.
In response, Pemmy Majodina expressed surprise at Dlamini-Zuma’s absence and pledged to inform the ANC Secretary-General about the matter. She mentioned that the National Disciplinary Committee would address it soon.
Athi also inquired about whether President Ramaphosa would have access to the Public Protector’s findings, to which Majodina confirmed, signaling the ANC’s intent to proceed with Mkhwebane’s removal.
This endorsement of removing the Public Protector marks a significant shift in South African politics. The implications of this decision on Mkhwebane’s term and the broader political landscape in South Africa are yet to unfold. Both the public and political analysts will closely monitor developments in the days and weeks ahead.
Pemmy Majodina (ANC Chief Whip):
ANC supported removing PP Adv Mkhwebane.
Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma voted against party line on Phala Phala. Her absence today?
Her absence today was a shock. I know about others. I’ll report to SG. It will go to NDC
