Nxasana judgment
Political analyst Ralph Mathegka weighs in on Friday's Nxasana judgment.

Friday morning's judgment of the North Gauteng High Court ordered that President Jacob Zuma may have no say in the appointment of a new National Director of Public Prosecutions.

A full bench presided over by Judge President Dunstan Mlambo in Pretoria has set aside the termination of former prosecution's boss Mxolisi Nxasana's contract, as well as the appointment of current head Shaun Abrahams.

702's Bongani Bingwa spoke to political analyst Ralph Mathegka about what it all means.

In the lead up to the ANC December Elective conference, this judgment pits President Zuma against Deputy President Cyril Rampahosa.
