Johannesburg - In her submission to President Cyril Ramaphosa regarding the damning Mokgoro report, the now axed deputy national director of public prosecutions (DNDPP) Nomgcobo Jiba pleaded with Ramaphosa to give her a senior position in government instead of leaving her unemployed.
The Presidency on Friday released Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi's representations to Ramaphosa on the adverse Mokgoro findings.
Jiba said she was an experienced prosecutor who's institutional knowledge was needed in the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) and that she should be reinstated to her post. She said she has three children who still attended school, an 85-year-old mother she cares for and does not want to be part of the "high unemployment statistics" in the country.
"My removal from office would cause undue harm to my family. With the high unemployment rate in the country, I do not want to be made part of that by our government. I humbly submit that the president should not accept and implement the findings and recommendations of the Mokgoro Inquiry to remove me from office as DNDPP," Jiba said.
"In the event that the president is not persuaded to accept this request, I humbly request a transfer within the public service post commensurate with my position as DNDPP."
