Cape Town - President Cyril Ramaphosa has appointed one of the top prosecutors to lead a new investigating unit in the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) months after the unit was announced.
Ramaphosa had said the new unit would investigate cases of state capture, corruption, fraud and other complex financial matters.
On Friday, the president named Advocate Hermione Cronje to lead the new investigating unit.
The unit will be based in the office of the National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP), Shamila Batohi.
Batohi has appointed a team that is dealing with state capture matters and has asked Pretoria chief prosecutor Matric Luphondo to keep a watching brief at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.
