Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane has been charged with three counts of perjury. She made a brief court appearance on Thursday. Accountability Now director Paul Hoffman laid a complaint against her.

This was after the Constitutional Court upheld a 2019 High Court ruling that found Mkhwebane acted dishonestly during her investigation into an apartheid-era loan by the Reserve Bank to Bankorp, now part of Absa.

Her report into the matter was set aside and she lost an appeal that she personally be held liable for a portion of the Reserve Bank’s legal costs. Mkhwebane is currently on a two-month sabbatical.
