In a letter, Madonsela has offered to pay for the state car that was damage in an accident.


Madonsela's son was driving at the time of the accident.


Madonsela has also withdrawn her objection for being charged for VIP protection services during the off-duty period determined by the SAPS VIP unit to end on 30 November 2016.


Madonsela emphasized that the decision she has made is informed by her moral compass.

"Our moral compass is compromised when we forget that we are not echoes of those that are against us or appear to be so. Those of us who believe in a better world must be the first to do what we believe is right or needs to be done to achieve such a world," says Madonsela.


The Office of the Public Protector says Mkhwebane has received the letter and has noted the contents.


"She will write back to Adv. Madonsela to acknowledge the letter. She still awaits the legal opinion from the state attorney for future reference," says spokesperson Oupa Segalwe.
