My term of office got off to a rocky start but what we did not expect was peddling of half-truths, fabrications, innuendos and some other information about myself and the institution.— Busisiwe Mkhwebane, Public Protector

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane is going to oppose President Jacob Zuma’s review of the State of Capture Report.
She says she’ll do so to comply with the court’s ruling.
On Thursday she briefed the media on her first 100 days in office.
In December, the president went to the High Court to review and set aside the remedial action specified in the State of Capture report.
The president says the remedial action doesn’t comply with the separation of powers doctrine.
