Sunday Observer - - NEWS - OHANNESBURG eNCA

J- For­mer Na­tional Di­rec­tor of Pub­lic Prose­cu­tions Mx­olisi Nx­as­ana wants Pres­i­dent Ja­cob Zuma to face cross-ex­am­i­na­tion about what mo­ti­vated his re­moval from of­fice.

In an in­ter­view with eNCA on Friday, Nx­as­ana claimed the pres­i­dent was de­ter­mined to fire him be­cause Zuma feared be­ing pros­e­cuted for cor­rup­tion.

Nx­as­ana re­vealed he knew his po­si­tion at the Na­tional Pros­e­cut­ing Au­thor­ity (NPA) was in jeop­ardy when Zuma re­fused to meet with him.

He said when he even­tu­ally man­aged to se­cure time with the presi dent, Zuma made it clear t he NPA head was no longer in his good books.

“He told me that peo­ple were telling him that I’m dan­ger­ous, that I re­ally want to pros­e­cute him and he said to me you know the mere men­tion of Mr Ngcuka, Bule­lani, it just drives him crazy. And he said these peo­ple came to him and said I meet with Bule­lani Ngcuka in one of the flats in Dur­ban.”
