Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane will have a new deputy by the end of the year.

Deputy Public Protector Kevin Malunga’s term of office comes to end on 9 December.

Parliament will now have to begin the process of finding a new deputy Public Protector.

Speaker Thandi Modise informed Parliament to start the process of finding his successor before recommending a suitable candidate to the president.

Malunga hasn’t had an entirely smooth ride at the Chapter 9 institution.
