The Reserve Bank applied to the court for the report to be set aside and to declare that Mkhwebane had abused her powers.

The Public Protector's CIEX report, where Absa was ordered to pay more than one billion rand, has been set aside by the High Court in Pretoria.

The court set aside Busisiwe Mkhwebane's report into the Bankorp apartheid era bail-out, reports EWN's Gia Nicolaides.

Absa, the Reserve Bank and Treasury challenged Mkhwebane's report, claiming it was procedurally unfair and rested on material errors of fact and law.

The Reserve Bank applied to the court for the report to be set aside and to declare that Mkhwebane had abused her powers.

Nicolaides says the ruling may set the wheels in motion for the Public Protector to lose her job.

The Reserve Bank sought a declaratory order that Mkhwebane abused her powers. That's why this particular ruling is so devastating for the Public Protector.

Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter

We had heard from Mkhwebane's lawyers, that if the court granted the declaratory order, it would prepare the grounds for the Public Protector to lose her job.

Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter

Ultimately, this may set a process in motion where she may find herself in a difficult position to keep her job.

Gia Nicolaides, EWN reporter

The Public Protector had claimed that her remedial action was merely a recommendation.

The court has set aside her report and awarded costs to Absa.

Take a listen to the EWN update:
