Busisiwe Mkhwebane coming to Ermelo

Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane will be in Ermelo this Friday.

The advocate’s visit to Ermelo is part of her program of introducing herself to communities.

She was appointed late last year by President Jacob Zuma in terms of section 193 of the South African constitution and on recommendation of members of Parliament following public interviews and will be at the helm of the Chapter 9 institution until at least 2023.

Her spokesman Oupa Segalwe said Mkhwebane will first be in Mbombela on 2 March 2017, then come to Ermelo’s Ella de Bruin Hall on 3 March.

“Her visit to Mpumalanga will come hot on the heels of a similar exercise earlier in the week in Limpopo, where she will hold a meeting with the community of Thohoyandou and surrounding areas and proceed to the provincial legislature on Monday and Tuesday, respectively,” Segalwe said.

“These engagements form part of the four-month long tour of all the provinces, which kicked- off in Gauteng a week ago.

“At end of the exercise, the public protector hopes to have introduced herself to identified stakeholders, including government leaders, the legislatures, political parties and the general public.

“She further hopes to use the platforms to outline her vision for the institution over the next seven years of her term in office and solicit stakeholders’ comments,” Sagwela said.
