JOHANNESBURG - The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has confirmed its boss Mxolisi Nxasana has met with President Jacob Zuma over his looming suspension.

The meeting took place this morning at the president's official residence.

Zuma had served Nxasana with notice of his intention to suspend him relating to a criminal case he once faced and for bringing the NPA into disrepute.

NPA spokesperson Nathi Mncube says the meeting went very well.

"The National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) met with the president with the view to give him some of the information that he felt Zuma was not privy to and that was done."

Nxasana will remain in office while Zuma considers the information which has been provided.

The NDPP had turned to the courts to force Zuma to give him more information about the reasons for his suspension.

But the legal action was withdrawn.
