Zuma to appeal NPA’s SCA court ruling

Reading Time: < 1 minute

President Jacob Zuma says he will approach the Supreme Court of Appeal, to appeal a High Court ruling that Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa should be the one to appoint a new National Director of Public Prosecutions.

The Pretoria High Court last week found that Zuma cannot appoint a new prosecutions boss because he is conflicted in the matter.

The court gave Ramaphosa 60 days to appoint a new NPA head after judges found the appointment of Shaun Abrahams as NPA boss was invalid and should be set aside.
