South Africa's parliament on Wednesday approved high-level civil servant Busisiwe Mkhwebane's nomination to replace outgoing Thuli Madonsela as Public Protector, a top anti-corruption position whose findings have vexed President Jacob Zuma.

Mkhwebane, 46, a lawyer whose most recent job was with the State Security Agency (SSA), has also worked as a director at Home Affairs and as an immigration official in China.

Madonsela led high-profile investigations that subjected Zuma and other government officials to unwelcome scrutiny.
