In the build-up to the appointment of our new public protector, we have engaged the services of that irreverent puppet Chester Missing for a series titled Puppet vs Protector. In it, Chester conducts short interviews with Dr Makhosi Khosa, the chairperson of the parliamentary ad hoc committee tasked with selecting Thuli Madonsela’s successor, as well as all the candidates.

The spongy celebrity is not known for mincing his words and he does not disappoint. It’s a serious business, but Chester takes a tongue-in-cheek look at the job and who’s vying for it.

The videos are produced by eNCA, in collaboration with them. Watch the available episodes via the links below. As more are produced we will add them to the list.
