The Public Protector says accessibility has been one of the key priorities since she took to office in October 2016.

This is one of the reasons Busisiwe Mkhwebane is presently visiting the communities of Thaba Nchu to  make the  service of the Public Protector’s office more accessible to people.

She indicated that she would like to increase the number of offices they have in the country but financial muscle is their biggest challenge in this regard.

She said her office is in talks with the Department of Justice and the Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Department (Cogta) to ensure ease of access to the grassroots levels.

She was addressing several stakeholders at the Free State Legislature on Thursday.

Engagements with the stakeholders forms part of her nationwide roadshow to introduce herself to the public.
