Naidoo says the prosecuting authority seems to have changed its tune following the removal of Zuma from power.

Casac director Lawson Naidoo says the NPA should conduct the prosecution in a speedy and efficient manner.

One hopes that they will pull out all the stops to ensure that this matter comes to trial as quickly as possible.

It's unfortunate that the decision has been taken by a compromised NDPP.

An unknown NGO this week asked the court for a permanent stay of Zuma's prosecution.

Naidoo says the organisation is most likely a front for Zuma and an attempt to stall court proceedings.
