Spokesperson Khusela Diko explains in detail why President Cyril Rampaphosa decided to axe the pair.

President Cyril Ramaphosa fired advocates Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi last week following a recommendation by the Mokgoro Commission inquiry into whether they are fit to hold office.

In a statement, the president said the inquiry found both officials are not fit and proper to hold prospective offices.

Spokesperson to President Cyril Ramaphosa, Khusela Diko, says there were a number of issues which pointed to lack of honesty on their part with regard to submissions they made to both the president as well as the inquiry.

It was also found that they lacked independence in the execution of their work, he adds.

He gave them an opportunity to make representation on why those recommendations should not be implemented. Unfortunately, they failed to respond to substantive matters that have been raised in the report.

The president felt the qualities of honesty, accountability, and independence are qualities that are expected of every public servant and not only in the National Prosecuting Authority.

Khusela Diko, Spokesperson - The Presidency

I think over time that president has shown his commitment to dealing with deviant practices.
