NPA advocates Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi have bee'n fired by the president. This follows the recommendation of Justice Yvonne Mokgoro after the inquiry into the pairs ability to hold office.
President Cyril Ramaphosa has heeded the advice of retired Constitutional Court Justice Yvonne Mokgoro and given two NPA advocates the axe.
Earlier this month, Ramaphosa had been handed Mokgoro's recommendations on the ability of Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi to serve their purpose at the National Prosecuting Authority.
Presidency spokesperson Khusela Diko has confirmed that the president has opted to relieve the pair of their duties, reported News24.
Mokgoro had found that the Deputy-National Director of Public Prosecutions and the Special Director of Public Prosecutions should be removed from office, Briefly.co.za reported yesterday.
Mokgoro reportedly commented in the report that the pair had failed in their functions:
"Jiba and Mrwebi have been involved in litigation in both their personal and official capacities over the years. They have, however, failed to introspect and reflect on the issues which have beset the NPA with their involvement, as reflected in this report."
