JOHANNESBURG: Ms Mkhwebane has called for the recusal of the chairperson of the committee on the grounds of allegations of corruption.

Suspended Public Protector, Adv Busisiwe Mkhwebane insists she cannot appear before the Chairperson of the Section 194 Committee, Mr Qubudile Dyantyi, whose credibility is “questionable”.

Ms Mkhwebane has called for the recusal of the chairperson of the committee on the grounds of allegations of corruption.

Speaking to the SABC, Ms Mkhwebane said Mr Dyantyi, together with Ms Pemmy Majodina, are a subject of an investigation.

“Mr Dyantyi and Miss Majodina are a subject of an investigation, especially by the police after they allegedly sent the late Tina Joemat-Pettersson to extort bribes from my husband,” she charges.

“I have even shared the recordings with members of the public and where they are being referred to and instances where Tina is saying they will be changing the procedure and focus on written submissions and the issue of being the chairperson of the Western Cape, Dyantyi.

“Hence I said I can’t appear before a person like that. His credibility is questionable. He can just recuse himself and I have requested that several times for him to recuse himself voluntarily instead of me lodging an application for his recusal,” she said in a televised interview.

“His credibility is questionable. He can just recuse himself and I have requested several times for him to recuse himself voluntarily,” she said.

The Section 194 inquiry into the fitness of Ms Mkhwebane to hold office has gathered momentum. After being held back by various delays, including two months without hearing evidence, the committee has now collated and submitted a list of questions for Ms Mkhwebane to answer to.

These are from the members of the committee as well as evidence leaders. Mr Mkhwebane’s attorneys of record, Chaane Attorneys, have indicated that they have received the questions and are considering them.
