The court found that the Public Protector's “entire model was flawed and that she was not honest about her engagements during the investigation. In addition, she failed to engage with the parties directly affected by her new remedial action before she published her final report.”

The Constitutional Court says Mkhwebane must pay a portion of the Reserve Bank’s legal costs.

Mkhwebane gave a briefing after the judgment saying she still has to study the ruling.
