Johannesburg - The National Prosecuting Authority has been ordered to pay thousands of rands to a mother of three children, Beeld newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Acting Chief Magistrate Daniel Thulare ordered South Gauteng NPA director Andrew Chauke, as a representative of the NPA, to pay the woman within seven days an amount of R21 600.

This is overdue maintenance money.

The NPA is being held responsible because it never appointed an investigating officer to follow up on the father, causing delays in the mother's maintenance claims.

Chauke said the NPA did not have enough maintenance officers and indicated that it would appeal.
