High Court bars Zuma from appointing National Director of Public Prosecutions

The High Court in Pretoria has ruled that the termination of former National Director of Public Prosecutions Mxolisi Nxasana is unconstitutional and advocate Shauwn Abrahans' appointment is invalid and has been set it aside. President Jacob Zuma has been ordered not to be involved in the appoitment of the NDPP because he is conflicted over the 783 corruption charges that have been hanging over his head for years. His deputy will take over this responsibility. The order was made when judge Dustin Mlambo was ruling on the settlement agreement between Zuma, the minister of Justice and former National Director of Public Prosecutions Mxolisi Nxasana which the bench has declared invalid and has set it aside. The application was brought by civil rights groups Freedom Under Law, Corruption Watch and CASAC who sought to have the payment of a R17 million golden handshake paid to Nxasana by the president in 2015 declared unlawful. Judge Mlambo gives the judgement.

Analyst says DA-led coalitions have been successful

Political Analyst from UNISA Professor Lesiba Teffo says the coalition led by the DA in various municipalities have been fairly successful despite the problems encountered since the agreements were reached. Teffo spoke as the partners briefed the media in Johannesburg about their achievements and challenges they encountered in the past year. They have told the media that it has not always been smooth sailing but that they are forging ahead. Relations between coalition partners have been particularly strained in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro where the Mayor of the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro Athol Trollip and his former deputy from the UDM Mongameli Bobani, were at each other's throats following allegations that Bobani voted with the ANC. He was subsequently removed from his position in August after a vote of no confidence against him. Teffo has told our presenter Stephen Kirker that the coalition is important.
