According to the Citizen the judge further confirmed the constitutional invalidity of certain sections of the NPA Act, giving parliament 18 months to amend it. President Ramaphosa now has 90 days to win back the confidence of the people by appointing a respectable and credible head of NPA who will restore confidence in the Authority. After years of being in bed with the ANC with rulings heavily skewed in favour of the Zuma, the time to clean up the authority has been provided by this ruling.
An independent head of the authority is awaited after years of abuse of power by Zuma to control the authority and prevent it from prosecuting him on charges of corruption despite evidence pointing to the fact that there is a case to answer.
