JOHANNESBURG - The ANC has slammed Parliament's decision to hold an inquiry into Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane's fitness for the office.

The party said the move is an opportunistic witch-hunt by opposition parties designed to intimidate Mkhwebane.

Parliament’s Portfolio Committee on Justice and Correctional Services announced the inquiry after a request by the Democratic Alliance.

The DA believes Mkhwebane should be relieved of her duties.

But the ANC said Parliament declared Mkhwebane fit for the role a year ago, and the inquiry is part of a campaign to discredit her.
