The Hawks made several high-profile arrests this week and the Daily Maverick's Sikonathi Mantshantsha says the NPA must step up.

It's high time that the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) goes after corrupt figures, says financial journalist Sikonathi Mantshantsha.

The Hawks made several high-profile arrests this week, including 10 officials linked to a dodgy toilet tender in the Eastern Cape.

African National Congress MP and former state security minister Bongani Bongo was also nabbed on corruption charges linked to alleged bribery attempts during Parliament’s state capture inquiry.

Mantshantsha says NPA head advocate Shamila Batohi and her team need to secure successful prosecutions.

The NPA has been severely weakened. We know why. But Shamila Batohi can't take forever to get on with it.
