The Constitutional Court will on Monday announce its decision on whether Shaun Abrahams' appointment as head of the NPA was unconstitutional or not, News24 has reliably learnt.

Earlier this year, the Constitutional Court heard an application to confirm two declaratory orders of constitutional invalidity, made by the North Gauteng High Court in Pretoria on December 8.

The High Court declared former president Jacob Zuma's conduct as unconstitutional in the termination of Mxolisi Nxasana's appointment as the then National Director of Public Prosecutions.

Nxasana accepted a golden handshake of R17.3m from Zuma after a break down in their relationship.

Nxasana informed Zuma about how his subordinates were undermining him, but Zuma did not assist him, the court heard.

It was also revealed that Nxasana did not want to resign from his position, but circumstances eventually pushed him to.

He told Zuma that he would only resign if he paid him out for the remaining years of his contract.

The court also found that the appointment of Abrahams into Nxasana's position was unconstitutional.
