[BREAKING] Advocate Jiba promoted, no longer being prosecuted

With just over a month of being on the job, the National Director of Public Prosecutions, Advocate Shaun Abrahams today hosted what has been called an 'impromptu' press conference.

EWN's Barry Bateman reported on the Midday Report that the press conference was sketchy on details. All was heard is that there will be a reshuffling of senior members of NPA. The biggest announcement from the press conference is Abrahams will not continue with the prosecution of one of his four deputies, Advocate Nomgcobo Jiba and will in fact be promoted.

Barry reports that Jiba has been promoted to the senior position of Head of National Prosecution Services, from deputy Director of Public Prosecutions.

He adds that the Advocate Abrahams went to great lengths to make it clear that he did not make the decision to not continue with the prosecution of Jiba.
