Ramaphosa fires Jiba and Mrwebi
President Cyril Ramaphosa has decided to axe Nomgcobo Jiba from office as Deputy National Director of Public Prosecutions, as well as Lawrence Mrwebi as Special Director of Public Prosecutions.
Letters were served to the pair on Thursday night after a report by retired Constitutional Court Justice Yvonne Mokgoro established that the two are neither fit nor proper to hold their respective offices within the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA).
Thursday marked the end of their suspension, placing pressure on the president to act on the recommendation set out by Mokgoro.
Eyewitness News reporter Barry Bateman has more on the story.
What happens next? Well the president's decision must be referred to Parliament within the next two weeks and then within 30 days after that Parliament has to take a decision on whether to confirm or reject the president's decisions.Barry Bateman, Reporter - EWN
The president's hands were tied. There was only one decision to be made.Barry Bateman, Reporter - EWN
Advocate Glynnis Breytenbach says Jiba and Mrwebi have caused havoc in the NPA and the decision could not have come a moment too soon.
He had very little choice. To go against the unanimous outcome of an inquiry chaired by Justice Mokgoro would have been impossible for him.Advocate Glynnis Breytenbach
