Cape Town - The parliamentary process to remove advocates Nomgcobo Jiba and advocate Lawrence Mrwebi from office at the NPA has been suspended until September 19.
This is to make way for Jiba’s application at the Western Cape High Court to be reinstated.
Parliamentary spokesperson Moloto Mothapo said yesterday that the agreement was reached by Speaker of the National Assembly Thandi Modise and parties involved in the urgent interdict sought by Jiba to stop President Cyril Ramaphosa from removing her and Mrwebi from office.
“Part A of the main application seeks to reinstate her (Nomgcobo Jiba) and to restore her benefits, while Part B is a review which seeks to set aside the president's decision to remove her and to set aside the findings of the Mokgoro Commission,” Moloto Mothapo said.
He added that Parliament’s agreement to the draft order was motivated by its endeavour to uphold fairness, impartiality and the rule of law.
