Gerrie Nel opens up about why he’s leaving the NPA for AfriForum

I’ve never had a political agenda and I don’t have one now.

Gerrie Nel

I understand the perceptions. Follow us, criticize us! If you think we have some kind of other agenda, then challenge us!

Gerrie Nel

We worry about selective prosecutions. So we’re not going to be selective ourselves.

Kallie Kriel, AfriForum

Oscar Pistorius and Jackie Selebi’s nemesis, Gerrie Nel, has quit the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).

The NPA top prosecutor – nicknamed “The Bulldog” – has, despite numerous high profile successes, long been side-lined by the NPA.

CapeTalk’s John Maytham crossed over live to the press conference. He also interviewed EWN’s Mandy Wiener.

Get it from the horse’s mouth - listen to Nel and Wiener in the audio below (and/or scroll down for more quotes from it).

He and Shaun Abrahams don’t see eye to eye.

Mandy Wiener, EWN

He’s not in the right camp at the NPA.

Mandy Wiener, EWN

Gerrie Nel is going to have a PR battle to overcome.

Mandy Wiener, EWN

It wasn’t a sudden decision.

Gerrie Nel

I will always be a prosecutor.

Gerrie Nel

Everybody should be equal before the law.

Gerrie Nel

I won’t sell my integrity!

Gerrie Nel

Never once has Gerrie Nel made an effort to leak anything to the media.

Mandy Wiener, EWN

We will not only go for high flyers.
