Media Statement 04 December 2018

CASAC welcomes the appointment of Adv Shamila Batohi as the new National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP). She has an arduous task ahead to restore public confidence in this critical institution that sits at the centre of the criminal justice system.

The effectiveness of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has been gravely eroded during the Zuma years with no fewer than 6 people holding the post of NDPP during his tenure as President – Mokotedi Mpshe (Acting NDPP), Menzi Simelane, Nomgcobo Jiba (Acting NDPP), Mxolisi Nxasana, Silas Ramaite (two stints as Acting NDPP), and Shaun Abrahams.
