Cala born Advocate represents President

Advocate Tembeka Ngcukaitobi represented the president in his successful attempt at interdicting the remedial action called for in the public protector’s Bosasa report.

Just last week, Ngcukaitobi represented the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), who joined Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane in her unsuccessful attempt to prevent President Cyril Ramaphosa from pausing remedial action against Public Enterprises Minister Pravin Gordhan.

The author of the book “The Land Is Ours: South Africa’s First Black Lawyers and the birth of Constitutionalism” has an LLB from the former University of Transkei and an LLM from Rhodes University. 

The remedial action stipulated that Ramaphosa must reveal all his CR17 funders in parliament. This will now be suspended pending the outcome of his judicial review of Mkhwebane’s report.
