Johannesburg - Advocates Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi have made submissions to President Cyril Ramaphosa on why they should not be suspended pending inquiries into their fitness to hold office.
Ramaphosa announced two weeks ago that he will be instituting inquiries into the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) employees' fitness to hold office.
Lawyer Zola Majavu, who represents the two, has confirmed that the representations have been filed on time.
“It’s is done, we will await the president’s decision and then we will make a determination,” said Majavu.
The president said the inquiry was crucial because of the importance of the public’s trust in the NPA.
