Corruption Watch call to vet Public Protector CVs

Twenty-one nominations have been received to fill the Office of the Public Protector. Africa Melane (standing in for John Maytham) spoke to Ronald Menoe, Stakeholder manager for Corruption Watch, about the process.

Corruption watch spearheaded the campaign to boost public participation and transparency in choosing the next Public protector.

Two names have been made public so far. Western Cape Judge Seraj Desai has been nominated and has accepted his nomination. The second candidate is current deputy public protector Kevin Malunga.

Menoe says the ad hoc committee established to nominate the new public protector will present the complete list next week.

Menoe says it is important to appoint someone who will be able to follow up on reports of both grand and petty corruption, and not just the big cases.

Corruption Watch has asked for a period of time to be able to go through the CVs of candidates nominated thouroughly. He says they have not had a reply from Parliament as yet.
