[LISTEN] Pierre de Vos analyses the investigations into Adv Jiba and Mrwebi
The Presidency announced on Thursday the suspension of NPA senior officials Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi pending the outcome of an inquiry into their fitness for office.
Claude Leon Foundation Chair in Constitutional Governance at the University of Cape Town Professor Pierre de Vos explains how we got to the point where this inquiry is instituted by the President.
What really led to their suspension is various court judgments that were not very kind towards them.Prof Pierre de Vos, Claude Leon Foundation Chair in Constitutional Governance at the University of Cape Town
Advocate Jiba was called mendacious by the High Court, and the Supreme Court of Appeal said her conduct was not worthy of the office she was holding.Prof Pierre de Vos, Claude Leon Foundation Chair in Constitutional Governance at the University of Cape Town
