President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced Advocate Shamila Batohi as the new National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP). Ramaphosa says Batohi's experience and international knowledge of the law and prosecution fit the character of a person they need to turnaround the embattled National Prosecuting Authority (NPA). In her acceptance speech Batohi urged the country and all within and outside the NPA


to work with her. Batohi will commence with her duty at the beginning of February next year. The NDPP heads the National Prosecuting Authority - which has been accused in recent years of failing to act against rampant crime and corruption.
