Advocate Nelisiwe Nkabinde has been appointed as the Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the Public Protector South Africa (PPSA). Nkabinde has served as an Executive Manager, responsible for Provincial Investigations and Integration (PII), within the PPSA since 2018. She is a highly experienced and qualified individual who brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the role of COO.
The office of the Public Protector of the Republic of South Africa has been in the news lately for a number of reasons. First, the Public Protector’s report on the PhalaPhala farm scandal cleared the Republic of South Africa and African National Congress (ANC) President Cyril Ramaphosa of any wrongdoing. The report found that there was no evidence that Ramaphosa had lied about the theft of game from his farm, or that he had misled Parliament about the incident.
The suspended Public Protector, Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane, is still fighting to keep her job while skipping court appearances. Mkhwebane was suspended by the Parliament of the Republic of South Africa in 2021, after a number of controversies. A committee is currently assessing her fitness to hold office, and a decision is expected soon.
According to reports, Adv. Nkabinde is a graduate of the University of KwaZulu-Natal and holds a law degree from the University of South Africa. She is also a certified mediator and arbitrator. She has over 20 years of experience in the legal field, and has worked in a variety of roles, including as a prosecutor, an advocate, and a legal advisor.
Adv. Nkabinde’s appointment is a positive step for the PPSA. She is a well-respected figure in the legal community and her experience will be invaluable in leading the organization into the future.
