The new public protector says she will leave the dispute over the state capture report prepared by h.
The two houses belonging to the late Afro-jazz musician, Jabu Khanyile, might be sold and the proceeds divided among his beneficiaries.
They would include his nine children and his widow, Gloria Khululiwe Sithole, 38, of Naturena in Johannesburg.
Lawyers dealing with the disposal of the estate were not sure yesterday if Khanyile's former wife and the mother of two of his children, Daphney Nomasonto Khanyile, 49, would benefit.
Khanyile and her children occupy the house in Dobsonville, Soweto.
Lawyer Kobus Boshoff said Khanyile had been divorced at the time of her husband's death.
"I'm not sure whether she qualifies to get anything because she was divorced. But I will look into that," he said.
The musician's estate, which includes three luxury cars and about R2million, Boshoff said.
"The three cars will be sold. I might have to sell the houses, but it's not clear at this stage," he said.
Boshoff represents Sithole, who was appointed executrix of the estate on March 28 by the assistant master of the high court.
The ruling followed a four-month legal battle between the two women over the estate.
Khanyile filed an urgent application in the Johannesburg high court on December 15 to stop Sithole using money from the estate.
Sithole filed her answering affidavit on January 16 in which she revealed that Khanyile was divorced in 2004.
She lodged a divorce decree to back her argument.
Sithole was declared the only legal wife of the late Khanyile.
She had married him four days before he died.
