Johannesburg – Public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s report exposing the plight of patients as a result of tender irregularities at Themba Hospital in KaBokweni outside White River, Mpumalanga has received a warm welcome from an unlikely quarter.
The DA, which has been on Mkhwebane’s case, labelling her an “RET [Radical Economic Transformation] protector” and a “Zuma appointee”, has been spearheading calls in parliament for her removal from office.
This week, it welcomed the public protector’s report and expects remedies to follow.
“The public protector is encouraged by the positive feedback. We call on all concerned to take the report in the same spirit as the DA.
