‘Standards quite low’: Madonsela slams Mpofu for ‘wasting taxpayers’ money’

Advocate Dali Mpofu had a hard time with former public protector Thuli Madonsela at the section 194 inquiry into suspended public protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s fitness to hold office.
Mpofu was uncomfortable with Madonsela changing her affidavit statements, saying some pages were not signed by the commissioner of oaths. Madonsela said her first statement had typos, that she had to amend it and make corrections and was alone with no commissioner of oaths when she made the amendments.
The committee said Mpofu must prove if it’s law that each page should be signed by a commissioner of oaths in which he referenced.
Madonsela said Mpofu fabricated lies about the affidavits.
