People are going to expect her to be another Thuli Madonsela - Corruption Watch

Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane's name will be recommended to the National Assembly to take over as Public Protector.

Ronald Menoe Head of Stakeholder Management: Corruption Watch says they are not rallying behind the candidate but they do think she is a fit and proper person for the job.

Corruption Watch were involved in the campaign to ensure public participation and transparency during the selection process for Public Protector.

Menoe says each and every candidate had some positives and some negatives.

There have been rumours that Mkhwebane is President Zuma's preferred candidate.

One of the political parties said we cannot now not appoint her because of her relationship with the President.

Menoe says Mkhwebane will be in that position for seven years should it be approved by the National Assembly, a lot longer than Zuma will remain in power.

He says one of her biggest challenges will be to remain impartial.

She follows in the big footsteps of Thuli Madonsela.

From the public side, the people are going to expect her to be another version of Thuli Madonsela. And we don't expect her really to be Thuli Madonsela, but we expect her to take the office from where it was, to new heights.

Ronald Menoe Head of Stakeholder Management: Corruption Watch

Menoe says the office is not only responsible for high profile cases, but also deals with 'petty corruption'. He says let's wait and see what she does.

She will likely take office in October 2016.
