Parliament has asked the public to use the next two weeks to comment on the National Prosecuting Authority Amendment Bill. It’s one of the measures to deal with and prevent state capture. However, Members of Parliament have raised concerns that the Bill does not deal sufficiently with the independence of the NPA.
In an effort to bring those accused of state capture to book, parliament has published the National Prosecuting Authority Amendment Bill for public comment over the next two weeks. It follows recommendations from the commission chaired by Chief Justice Raymond Zondo, who handed a report to President Cyril Ramaphosa. Deputy Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development John Jeffery explains further.
