EWN reporter Barry Bateman unpacks the former NDPP's testimony at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.

Former National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) advocate Mxolisi Nxasana is continuing to give testimony at the Zondo Commission of Inquiry into State Capture on Monday.

The advocate is returning to the commission after his earlier testimony in June.

Nxasana told the commission that soon after he was appointed NDPP he was told that former senior prosecutors Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi were conspiring to have him fired.

Clement Manyathela on the Xolani Gwala Show chats to EWN reporter Barry Bateman who is tracking developments at the inquiry.

He says from the day he walked into the job he was told by National Prosecutions Authority (NPA) officials who volunteered this information to him, that there were already plans afoot by former Jiba and Mrwebi to have him ousted.

Bateman says Nxasana has also gone into detail about having a poor relationship with former president Jacob Zuma and all communication between them was through Zuma's attorney Michael Hulley.

He says no matter what he did to try and set up a meeting with the former president, he would get stonewalled and he would have to go through Halley.

Bateman reports that Nxasana also provided detail of how there were disunity and instability in the NPA.

He explained how Jiba and Mrwebi apparently told the president that there were plans by Nxasana to reinstitute his corruption case.

Jiba says he believes that this misinformation contributed to the breakdown in communication, adds Bateman.
