The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) has denied that the decision taken on the 783 counts of corruption and other offences against President Jacob Zuma is connected to what is happening against him politically.
On Tuesday NPA head, Shaun Abrahams, gave prosecutors until next week Friday to provide him with their recommendations on whether or not President Zuma should be prosecuted.
This announcement came after the African National Congress (ANC) National Executive Committee (NEC) took a decision to recall Zuma as President of the country.
NPA spokesperson, Luvuyo Mfaku says, “They are expected to give their recommendations by the 23rd. The fact that this decision is actually going to be made is actually just an issue of coincidence with what is happening in the country politically.”
