Busisiwe Mkhwebane says her reports are not soft, and that she is here to stay until 2023.
Busisiwe Mkhwebane's Bankorp-CIEX report, in which ABSA was ordered to pay R1,125-billion, was set aside by the Pretoria High Court on Friday.
"It appears as if the Reserve Bank is trying to have Mkhwebane removed from her office."
Busisiwe Mkhwebane says there is not enough time to prepare for the court application.
Parliament has joined the Reserve Bank in taking the public protector's Absa report to court.
The former reserve bank governor responded to the Busisiwe Mkhwebane's report on the bailout Absa received, and the reserve bank's role in it.
She also wants to change the Constitution about South African Reserve Bank's role.
A strident minister of finance says in court papers no responsible government could act on a report by ex-British spies.
The report the public protector uses as basis for her explosive Absa recommendations says the Ruperts helped facilitate the deal.
More than R3 billion is recoverable from the banking giant, the report said.
It might be a provisional report, but Busisiwe Mkhwebane is pretty clear: the country's biggest bank owes the fiscus money.
Why would Busisiwe Mkhwebane rely on an unsubstantiated report by British spooks about "looted apartheid billions"?
