South Africa’s embattled Public Protector, Busisiwe Mkhwebane, has announced that she is on sabbatical until the end of March this year as she needs to “get some rest”. Times Live reports that the under-fire Mkhwebane is however facing three counts of perjury and is expected to appear at the North Gauteng High Court on Thursday, while also facing a parliamentary inquiry brought by the opposition DA which may lead to her removal over a number of investigations, including the Absa/Reserve Bank matter, which she bungled.
