Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng on Thursday said the public protector is the “embodiment of a biblical David” defending the public against the well-resourced Goliath of the state.

Delivering the Constitutional Court’s unanimous judgment in the Nkandla case‚ Mogoeng said the role and powers of the public protector must be understood.


He said the public protector’s office is pivotal to strengthening the country’s democracy and ensuring good governance and the constitution guarantees the independence and impartiality of the public protector.
