JOHANNESBURG - Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Mmusi Maimane says that he will have to take action if President Jacob Zuma refuses to suspend National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) head Advocate Shaun Abrahams.

Maimane wrote to Zuma on Tuesday asking him to suspend Abrahams, saying he’s refused to act against people named in the Gupta leaks emails, who are accused of corruption.

Maimane has previously laid charges against former Communications Minister Faith Muthambi, Duduzane Zuma and members of the Gupta family after information about their deals was made public.

He says Abrahams cannot continue to ignore the mounting evidence of corruption.

“There’s no rational reason as to why he’s refusing to act on this basis. Unless, of course, he’s politically connected to Zuma.”
