31 January, 12:23 PM

While news of state advocate Gerrie Nel's resignation from the National Prosecuting Authority, after 35 years of service, was still sinking in on Tuesday, the institution wished him well with his future endeavours.

NPA spokesperson Luvuyo Mfaku confirmed to News24 that Nel had tendered his resignation on Monday to the director of public prosecutions in Pretoria, Advocate Sibongile Mzinyathi, "citing other interests outside the NPA".

News24 understands that Nel will be joining civil rights organisation AfriForum, to head up their new private prosecuting unit. It was believed that AfriForum would make an official announcement on Wednesday morning.
