Former National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) boss, Mxolisi Nxasana says the past three years since termination of his employment as NPA head have been tough.
He says the Constitutional Court judgment on Monday comes with a challenge.
Justice Mbuyiseli Madlanga ordered that he pays back R10.3 million of the R17.3 million golden handshake he received to vacate office.
Nxasana says he will abide by the court order to repay the money.
“I am glad that this court agreed with me, to say the only issue is I accept what the court has to say because of the instability at the NPA which was happening long before I was there in 2007. But I think that’s the majority of the review. But you have the minority decision as well, which agrees with me that I should be reinstated automatically. And if I am not reinstated, it’s unfair to me to be given an order that I must pay back the money.”
