The National Prosecuting Authority will soon announce major changes to its leadership structures. 

City Press has learnt from two senior sources that one of the most significant changes is that of the appointment of former deputy director of public prosecutions Nomgcobo Jiba to the position of head of national prosecution services – the highest decision making body in the organisation. 

The department initially fell under the leadership of Dr Silas Ramaite, who has been moved to corporate services. 

The chief executive of the NPA, Karen van Rensburg, has been demoted to the position of an ordinary prosecutor in a Pretoria court. 

The Asset Forfeiture Unit’s Willie Hofmeyr, a long-time senior in the organisation, has been moved to legal services and he’ll be replaced by Advocate Pinky Mokgatla. 

The changes were set to be announced at a press conference later today. NPA spokesperson Luvuyo Mfaku said he would not comment on internal changes. 

More than a week ago, City Press reported that the NPA had decided to drop charges against Jiba. 

She was scheduled to appear in Pretoria’s Specialised Commercial Crimes Court tomorrow on two charges of fraud and one of perjury related to her handling of the case against KwaZulu-Natal Hawks head Major-General Johan Booysen. 

City Press reported that the NPA was set to withdraw as a complainant in the matter. The organisation was also planning to appeal the ruling of Judge Trevor Gorven who in his judgment accused Jiba of lying under oath in the same matter.
