LISTEN: What's AfriForum's private prosecution attempt against Jiba about?

Lobby group, AfriForum has announced that they will be privately prosecuting advocate Nomgcobo Jiba on charges of defeating the ends of justice for her role in the alleged plot to derail a corruption case against a Kwazulu-Natal businessman linked to President Jacob Zuma.

AfriForum's Kallie Kriel says Jiba abused her position as deputy national director of public prosecutions to fabricate a story against former KwaZulu-Natal Hawks head General Johan Booysen.

According to Kriel, Booysen was targeted for instigating an investigation against the business operations of Thoshan Panday, a close business associate of President Jacob Zuma.

She abused her position by fabricating a case against Booysen and starting to prosecute him to get him away from the investigation s regarding Panday.

But that failed because Booysen went to court and the court found that there was no substance in the allegations against him

Kriel says there are many more cases that there would like to tackle but there are procedures to be followed. He says they can only take on cases where there has been a decision not prosecute.

AfriForum is asking the NPA for a nolle prosequi certificate that will allow them to privately prosecute Jiba, says Kriel.
