Port Elizabeth - The DA in the Eastern Cape will file a Promotion of Access to Information Act application to have the NPA's record of the decision, regarding why it has not prosecuted the Nelson Mandela Bay head of safety and security, made public.

DA Eastern Cape leader Athol Trollip said in a statement the NPA had missed the DA's deadline to provide reasons why Linda Mti "wasn't prosecuted in 2009 for corruption and fraud".

Trollip said fourteen days had passed since he wrote the letter to NPA head Shaun Abrahams.

"The DA has fought Mti's appointment to NMB's Safety and Security Head since it was first proposed by Danny Jordaan. As a convicted criminal and alleged fraudster, there is no place for Linda Mti in the higher offices of our Metro government," he said.

Mti was found guilty of drunk and negligent driving in 2008.
