Public Protector Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane says she has faced a number of challenges over her past three years in office, adding that her remedial actions and report findings are being ignored by some Cabinet members and sate organs.
Mkhwebane on Friday briefed Parliament’s justice and correctional services committee about her office’s annual performance.
She has told MPs that she achieved 72% of her performance targets in the 2018/19 financial year, up from 50% the previous year.
