Pretoria - The inquiry into the fitness to hold office of the suspended deputy national director of public prosecutions, Nomgcobo Jiba, heard that she allegedly used her powers to prosecute those who were seen to be an obstruction to former President Jacob Zuma.
“She was starting to play political games with cases," said current deputy NDPP Willie Hofmeyr on Thursday.
He was testifying at the Mokgoro Inquiry, mandated to investigate the fitness of Jiba and suspended special director of public prosecutions Lawrence Mrwebi to hold office.
Hofmeyr made references to cases against Anwa Dramat, Shadrack Sibiya, Robert McBride, Pravin Gordhan and Glynnis Breytenbach.
He said the cases were usually instituted in a blaze of publicity and usually withdrawn or discharged.
