...It was related to the ICT Kumba Iron Ore matter, according to the National Prosecuting Authority, and the way she handled that case.— Mandy Wiener, EWN reporter
She maintains that she was only disciplined and charged because she was trying to prosecute Richard Mdluli (who was the head of crime intelligence) and that advocate Nomgcobo Jiba (who was the deputy head of the NPA ) was trying to protect Mdluli.— Mandy Wiener, EWN reporter
For some reason they have decided to charge her three years later. We don't know if they have subsequently found new evidence against her.— Mandy Wiener, EWN reporter
