'New NPA boss is a man of integrity'
The president appointed Shaun Abrahams as NDPP after Mxolisi Nxasana’s resignation three weeks ago.
JOHANNESBURG - Former acting National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) head advocate Mokotedi Mpshe has said the institution's new boss, Shaun Abrahams, is a man of integrity.
None of the previous NPA heads have finished their full 10 year terms.
Mpshe said he knows Abrahams well.
"He's an independent young man who has integrity, that much I can vouch for."
He added that Abrahams will have to work hard to reconcile the different groups within the NPA.
"I think he will be able to pull them together because of his personality and because of his vast experience."
But the Democratic Alliance claims the new NDPP is close to Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Nomgcobo Jiba, who is currently facing criminal charges.
