The Western Cape High Court has reserved judgement in Advocate Busisiwe Mkhwebane’s urgent application to be allowed back at work.
Last week, the same court set aside her suspension as Public Protector.
But the DA, President Cyril Ramaphosa and the acting Public Protector, Advocate Kholeka Gcaleka, opposed the application.
Ramaphosa and the DA have also filed applications for leave to appeal the ruling with the Constitutional Court.
Mkhwebane’s defence argued that the Public Protector was being targeted because she wanted to investigate the President because of the Phala Phala farm saga.
