Presidency to know why Jiba, Mrwebi shouldn't be suspended

JOHANNESBURG - The Presidency will soon know why Deputy National Prosecuting Authority boss, Nomgcobo Jiba, and her colleague Lawrence Mrwebi, say they should not be suspended.

This is pending an inquiry into their fitness to hold office.

According to Jiba's advocate, her submissions have been given to the Presidency.

Mrwebi’s submissions are said to be in the process of being delivered.

President Cyril Ramaphosa announced last week that he would institute an inquiry into the pair's fitness to hold office.

In July, the Supreme Court of Appeal overturned a High Court ruling striking Jiba and Mrwebi from the roll of advocates.

They had both been accused of misconduct in their handling of sensitive prosecutions, including that of former crime intelligence boss, Richard Mluli.
