South African President Cyril Ramaphosa gave Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane 10 days to provide reasons why he shouldn’t suspend her, bringing to a head a four-year battle with the graft ombudsman.

The request comes after a parliamentary committee this week said it will proceed with a motion to impeach Mkhwebane on grounds of misconduct, incapacity and misconduct.
