'Abrahams has had ample time to make a decision'

Former KwaZulu-Natal Hawks Head and Author of Blood on their Hands, General Johan Booysen says it is clear National Prosectistion Authority (NPA) head Shaun Abrahams is out to save his own skin as he is set to announce his decision on whether or not to prosecute former President Jacob Zuma.

A date for the public announcement is yet to be confirmed.

Booysen says the evidence has always been there and that Abrahams has delayed the process.

He has had ample time to come to a decision. When the high court in Gauteng ruled that a decision to withdraw charges were irrational, he in fact appealed. Now when we see a regime change, he seems to have awoken from his hibernation.
