Jiba, Mrwebi 'Were Bragging' That Nothing🚫 Would Happen To Them, State Capture Inquiry Hears🔊

  |   Sanews

Former National Director of Public Prosecutions Mxolisi Nxasana says he received reports that fired senior prosecutors, Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi, "bragged" that nothing would happen to them.

Nxasana said on July 18, 2014, he made recommendations to the Minister of Justice to ask the president to institute disciplinary action against Jiba and Mrwerbi and to place them on suspension pending the hearing.

Nxasana said he gave instructions to everyone to co-operate with the commission, however, Jiba and Mrwebi failed to do so.

He said Yacoob made recommendations that criminal charges be instituted against certain members of the NPA.

But former President Jacob Zuma did not act on the recommendations, Nxasana said.

Nxasana earlier told the commission that his view was that Zuma was on a "fishing expedition" to establish an inquiry into his fitness to hold office, although the former president did not have "solid ground" to establish it.

At the time, Zuma appointed the inquiry in terms of Section 12(6) of the National Prosecuting Authority Act of 1998.

Nxasana told the commission that Zuma's complaints had "unintended consequences" because his children now knew he had some "brushes with the law".
