Former Chief Operations Officer Basani Baloyi is expected to take the stand in the Section 194 Inquiry into suspended Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s fitness to hold office which resumes on Monday morning.

Baloyi is the tenth witness who has worked with Mkhwebane, who will testify. She is expected to give clarity about an SMS Mkhwebane sent to her soon after she was appointed.

When Senior Manager for Executive Support in the Office of the Public Protector Futana Tebele testified recently, he was taken by surprise by a text message revealing that Mkhwebane may not have trusted him.

Evidence leader Advocate Ncumisa Mayosi read the SMS during the hearing. It will form part of Baloyi’s testimony.

Baloyi is also expected to testify why she believes that Mkhwebane and former CEO Vusi Mahlangu terminated her contract.
