Pressure Mounts in Face-Off Between South Africa's Gordhan, Ombud

Speaking on eNCA's The Fix, Pravin Gordhan's lawyer, Tebogo Malatji, said that Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane did not engage meaningfully with submissions made to her office while investigating a complaint involving Gordhan's tenure as minister of finance. This comes as the Economic Freedom Fighters, who previously had misgivings about Mkhwebane's suitability for her office, came out in support of the Public Protector and called on President Cyril Ramaphosa to exclude Gordhan from his new Cabinet.
