Just a day after a group calling itself Concerned South Africans announced its intention to march against Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane, another group said it will be marching in support of the office. Itumeleng Madisha, the spokesperson for the Mahlodi Madisha Education Foundation, told News24 on Thursday the foundation would be marching in Pretoria on 30 August 2019.

He said the organisation, which he said only accepted ANC and SACP members, was planning to march to Mkhwebane's offices in Pretoria on August 30 "and not leave until she leaves office".

Mkhwebane is currently in the midst of a slew of challenges to her findings that the president breached the Executive Members' Ethics Act over a R500 000 donation to his campaign to be elected ANC president. He has taken the finding on review. On Wednesday, Mkhwebane filed bank statements, which are in the safekeeping of a judge, that she used to come to her conclusion.

Meanwhile, in statement issued on Thursday, the ANC said it distanced itself from the alleged planned shutdown of the Office of the Public Protector. ANC spokesperson Pule Mabe said the party had noted posts doing the rounds on social media with the official logo and Ramaphosa's face calling for a general march. Mabe said the ANC supported and respected all constitutional bodies including the Office of the Public Protector.
