JIBA HEADS NEW NPA DEPARTMENT
Newly appointed head of prosecution services Nomgcobo Jiba is now a free woman. Fraud and perjury charges against Jiba have been officially dropped this morning.
During a media briefing yesterday, NPA head Shaun Abrahams announced that charges would be dropped against her, without any explanation This move has been shunned by Corruption Watch, who have called on Abrahams to explain his decision.
However the NPA head remains tight lipped , only revealing that his decision follows consultations with various legal experts who agree that the matter against Jiba would not hold in court.
Jiba, whos trial was scheduled to begin today, has held a media briefing and expressed how he feels vindicated and relieved.
Abrahams has reportedly done away with the entire NPA executive committee, and is currently reappointing new people to those portfolios.
The new positions are expected to be filled and fully functional from Monday 24 August.
