No need for Zuma to set up inquiry into Jiba's fitness - former NPA head

Former National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) head, Mxolisi Nxasana, says the inquiry to determine whether Deputy National Director of Public Prosecutions Advocate Nomngcobo Jiba is fit to hold office is unnecessary since the High Court has already ruled that she is unfit.

Last month the High Court in Pretoria struck Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi off the roll of advocates.

He [President Jacob Zuma] must be in Parliament with a view to remove them because the Court has already found that they are no longer fit and proper.

Today President Jacob Zuma gave notice of his intention to suspend senior NPA officials Jiba and Mrwebi.

They are not advocates at the moment, which is a requirement for them to be appointed at NPA.

However Jiba's lawyer Zola Majavu says it's not forgone conclusion that the President will establish an inquiry.

Majavu says the High Court decision remains frozen until all appeals have been finalised.

The application for leave to appeal will be done in November or early in December.
