Nomgcobo Jiba to take Mokgoro findings to High Court
Former deputy prosecutions boss Nomgcobo Jiba says she will challenge the findings and recommendations of the Mokgoro commission in the High Court.
President Cyril Ramaphosa axed Jiba and advocate Lawrence Mrwebi after accepting a recommendation that the pair be removed from office.
The commission - chaired by retired Constitutional Court Justice Yvonne Mokgoro - found the two advocates were neither fit nor proper to hold their respective offices.
Jiba insists the report is riddled with elementary errors.
Eyewitness News (EWN) reporter Barry Bateman has more on the story.
Until they actually file papers and give notice of their intention to place the matter on review, I think it [their axing] is all going ahead and will be sent to Parliament until such time that anything happens in court and they obtain an order of sorts to stop that from happening.Barry Bateman, Reporter - EWN
