Ndlozi questions autonomy of the NPA

Published on

Mbuyiseni Ndlozi has questioned the autonomy of the NPA, further suggesting that it is a body that has been co-opted by the ruling party.

Commissar of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Mbuyiseni Ndlozi took to Twitter on Thursday, 6 May 2021, to question the autonomy of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA). Ndlozi, in a series of tweets, unpacked his beliefs on the NPA supposedly being co-opted by the ruling party.

Ndlozi also touched on former president, Thabo Mbeki’s supposed interference in the running of the NPA. He stated, “Those who have any sense of history in the ANC should refer to political meddling in the NPA. President Mbeki suspended (Vusi) Pikoli as NOA head for seeking to charge (Jackie) Selebi. Even President Motlanthe consolidated the firing of Pikoli as NPA Head, perhaps also for charging Zuma in 2005.””

Ndlozi further stated, “What this demonstrates is that NPA is not immune to political influence. If they can suspend NPA Head for charging prominent people, it is possible they can appoint/pressure NPA Head to charge political opponents. Hence the principle of innocent [until] proven guilty kicks in!”
