ANC still undecided on Mkhwebane removal

The court said she made irrational findings when investigating a R500,000 donation to President Cyril Ramaphosa.

In a formal response, ANC Deputy Secretary-General Jessie Duarte conceded the judgment was quite scathing about Mkhwebane, thereby strengthening the hand of those who want her out.
