Justice Minister Michael Masutha

 

Johannesburg - Justice Minister Michael Masutha on Wednesday called for an end to infighting at the National Prosecuting Authority, and saw the first priority at the troubled body as resolving the fate of prosecuting chief Mxolisi Nxasana.

“We have identified the issues around the NDPP as the first priority in dealing with the whole broader issue of management in the NPA, which has been widely publicised,” Masutha told Parliament's justice portfolio committee.

“I think it is only fair that we deal with one issue at a time,” he added.

“I am sure that once the issue has been resolved relating to the NDPP either way, and I do not want to give the impression here that the matter will be resolved in one direction or the other... all other matters relating to the management of the NPA will only be looked at.”

Masutha made clear that the decision on whether to retain Nxasana in his post as national director of public prosecutions lay with President Jacob Zuma, who appointed him in October last year.

It emerged last month that former justice minister Jeff Radebe had asked Nxasana to resign because he had failed to disclose that he was charged with murder and acquitted of murder in 1985. - Sapa
