Pretoria - President Jacob Zuma has been interdicted by a North Gauteng High Court judge from making a permanent appointment of a national director of public prosecutions.

The order was granted on Tuesday morning and will be enforced until the court has given judgment in the application of ousted National Director of Public Prosecutions Vusi Pikoli to have the decision to fire him declared unlawful and unconstitutional.

The application will be heard towards the end of November.
