Advocacy organisations have raised questions over the progress of the National Prosecuting Authority’s (NPA) investigations into the Marikana tragedy.
The NPA has welcomed the judgment by the High Court in Johannesburg which found former crime intelligence boss Richard Mdluli and his co-accused Mthunziomhle Mthunzi, guilty of kidnapping and intimidation.
Constitutional Law expert, Shadrack Gutto, has disagreed with Justice Minister Ronald Lamola’s decision to defend the National Prosecuting Authority’s attempts to seek private funding.
The National Prosecuting Authority says the not guilty verdict in the case of Duduzane Zuma, the son of former president Jacob Zuma is fair.
Insufficient funding, high vacancy rates and the exodus of senior prosecutors are some of the main problems the National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) Advocate Shamila Batohi says the NPA is facing.
