Johnson was the first advocate to interview for the position of prosecutions boss on Thursday.

The first advocate to interview for the position of prosecutions boss, Andrea Johnson, has set out how she would deal with the beleaguered National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).

The state prosecutor concluded her interview at the Union Buildings in Pretoria on Thursday.

President Cyril Ramaphosa set up a seven-member panel of legal professionals to shortlist candidates.

Johnson says if she’s appointed, she will start with changes at the top.

Eyewitness News reporter Barry Bateman was there.

She says the top leadership of this organisation are part of the problem. She says the first thing she will do is replace and remove some of those people in the top leadership of the organisation and set about turning this ship around.

Barry Bateman, EWN reporter

Each of the candidates have been presented with a case study.....Johnson set out from the beginning just the way she would deal with each and every person, sighing the law to the book and really confident in the manner she was addressing the panelists here.

Advocate Rodney de Kock has also been interviewed.

About turning this organisation around, he says it is very staff-centric - you need to reconnect the staff to the core values of the country and values as prosecutors. He is also quite clear that the dead weight, people that are not there to contribute, should no longer be there.
