The Democratic alliance has made some pretty damn serious accusations, claiming that PP candidate Adv. Busisiwe Mkhwebane has close ties to none other than Jacob Zuma.
The DA dropped the bomb in parliament on Tuesday, a day before the National Assembly is due to officially nominate Mkhwebane as Thuli Madonsela’s replacement. As soon as she’s been nominated the decision needs to be ratified by Zuma.
DA MP Werner Horn, however, told MPs that he has information proving Mkhwebane’s ties to the State Security Agency, who employed her while she was stationed at our embassy in China.
The opposition noted that Mkhwebane failed to mention this during the Public Protector preliminary interviews and DA MP Glynnis Breytenbach asked the young Advocate to come clean and remove herself as nominee.
TimesLive reports that Mkhwebane’s nomination came despite opposition parties’ concerns about her time at the State Security Agency – Zuma’s political tool of choice in dealing with rival ANC factions – and her alleged ties to Jacob Zuma.
