The office of the Public Protector has been established to ostensibly strengthen constitutional democracy by investigating and redressing improper and prejudicial conduct, maladministration and abuse of power in state affairs amongst other things . But last week Public Protector Thuli Madonsela was taken to task by Members of Parliament over some of the cases that she has taken on in what the MP’s described as the abuse of her office resources. Madonsela came under fire for investigating cases that the MPs thought could have been adequately handled by the justice system.
