JOHANNESBURG – The Democratic Alliance on Thursday congratulated Freedom Under Law for getting fraud and perjury charges against Nomgcobo Jiba, and disciplinary charges against Lawrence Mwrebi and Jiba, reinstated.
The North Gauteng High Court today. effectively set aside “the clearly irrational and expedient decision by Abrahams to withdraw fraud and perjury charges against Jiba,” DA Shadow Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development Glynnis Breytenbach said in a media statement.
Breytenbach noted, “Once again the actions of Shaun Abrahams have been sharply called into question by our courts. (The courts) demonstrated again that he is unfit for high office.
“The sooner he vacates that position, the sooner the work to reverse the capture of the NPA can begin.”
She also criticized President Zuma for failing to deal effectively with the matter.
“This judgement again confirms that the judiciary will enforce the Constitution and the rule of law and that those who choose to flout these principles will be held to account,” said Breytenbach
