Lawson Naidoo says President Ramaphosa will have to make his choice based on the recommendations made by the panel.

Five names have been selected from 11 candidates who were interviewed for the position of National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) from Wednesday to Friday last week.

The five names are:

• Advocate Shamila Batohi
• Advocate Siyabulela Mapoma
• Advocate Simphiwe Mlotshwa
• Advocate Rodney de Kock
• Advocate Andrea Johnson

Lawson Naidoo, Executive Secretary at Casac, says these are the five capable people who have been shortlisted. He says President Ramaphosa will have to make his choice based on the recommendations made by the panel.

The ultimate decision rests with the President and we certainly hope that once he makes the appointment he will give us reasons why he thought a particular candidate is more deserving than others.

Lawson Naidoo, Executive Secretary at CASAC

Civil society organisation Right2Know fought for the interviews to be publicised on national television and Naidoo says it was valuable that the public was able to watch the proceedings.

I think the value of it is that people were able to engage with the process and be able to communicate about the candidates and their qualities.

Lawson Naidoo, Executive Secretary at CASAC

The outcome of the process will be someone who is going to be appointed, which will be seen by many as legitimate candidate because they came under scrutiny by the panel in public and have answered some very difficult questions.
