Madonsela praised Ramaphosa for his efforts to combat corruption

Former Public Protector, Thuli Madonsela has praised President Cyril Ramaphosa on his efforts to combat corruption with the appointment of Adv Shamila Batchi as the new National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) as well as changes in other SOE boards.

Madonsela told News Night that not only does Batohi know the sector but she has appointed competent people to assist her.

She also praised Ramaphosa on the appointment of the new commissioner of the South African Revenue Service (SARS) Edward Kieswetter as his time as Deputy Commissioner will serve him well in the new role.

The president has a clear vision and SOE’s are starting to receive the correct attention with the correct people to handle the job, but South Africans need to work together, despite their differences, in order to achieve the change, said Madonsela.
