JOHANNESBURG - The Mokgoro inquiry has found prosecutors Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi unfit to hold office and recommends the President Cyril Ramaphosa fire both.
Ramaphosa had until close of business to make a decision and communicate their fate to them.
At the inquiry, a tearful Jiba shed told Justice Yvonne Mokgoro that she felt betrayed by her colleagues, and insisted she never took any dubious decisions.
Mrwebi meanwhile said the inquiry was unfair and felt like a targetted attack.
Freedom Under Law says the report and its findings bode well for restoring the integrity of the National Prosecuting Authority.
The Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution says the report reveals much more needs to be done to clean up the NPA.
Ramaphosa also received representations from both Jiba and Mrwebi in response to the report.
So what did Mokgoro say about the pair and what does it mean for the future of the NPA?
