The Mokgoro Commission of Inquiry into advocates Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi's fitness to hold office wrapped up the oral hearings on Thursday.
Council for the two embattled officials made final arguments to the Constitutional Court Judge Yvonne Mokgoro.
EWN reporter Barry Bateman who has been following the proceedings speaks to Bongani Bingwa.
We listened to Norman Arendse who is representing Jiba saying that all these allegations against his client can be best described as a conspiracy theory.— Barry Bateman, Reporter - EWN
And he says once you tackle this theory and you search for the facts to support claims that she was involved in political meddling and abusing the power of the NPA - once you start looking for those facts, you find that there is nothing to support those claims.— Barry Bateman, Reporter - EWN
Bateman reports that Arendse added that his client, Jiba, has been caught up in successive leadership changes at the NPA and as a result of that instability, there has been a perception of malfeasance that has been executed within the organisation.
Arendse argues there is no supporting evidence.
His client has been implicated by association, and there is simply no evidence to support claims that she was assisting former president Jacob Zuma.— Barry Bateman, Reporter - EWN
Bateman adds that evidence leaders at the Mokgoro Commission will add their final submissions next week in writing.
