During the briefing, both Batohi and investigative directorate head Hermione Cronje spoke of the priority of cleaning up the security sector in order to restore public confidence.
One of the pillars of what she called the 'new NPA' is one of transparency. That includes informing the public about what the NPA is doing... that the public is able to rebuild confidence in the investigation.Barry Bateman, Reporter - EWN
