President Cyril Ramaphosa to announce NPA Boss

President Cyril Ramaphosa

President Cyril Ramaphosa has 90-days to appoint a new National Prosecuting Authority boss.

This after the country’s highest court yesterday found former NPA head Mxolisi Nxasana’s removal was unconstitutional.

It also found Shaun Abrahams’s subsequent appointment was unconstitutional.

Several names have been touted to replace Abrahams.

President Cyril Ramaphosa

But just who is going to be picked to sort out the troubled prosecuting body?

Presidency spokesperson, Khusela Diko, spoke to eNCA to discuss possible candidates.

Diko said Ramaphosa will announce an acting NPA boss.

Speculation is rife over who will succeed Abrahams permanently. A highly placed source said former national director of prosecutions Vusi Pikoli, Western Cape director of prosecutions Rodney de Kock and former auditor-general Terence Nombembe are under consideration. However, the national director has to be an advocate, which rules out Nombembe, a chartered accountant. Nombembe declined to say whether he has been approached.
