JOHANNESBURG - The parliamentary ad-hoc committee tasked with selecting a new public protector narrowed down the candidate list on Thursday.

The 14 contenders were grilled during a marathon sitting last week.

The last remaining candidates are Sharise Weiner, Siraj Desai, Busisiwe Mkhwebane, Muvhango Lukhaimane and Bongani Majola.
