Opposition parties are rallying to stop Menzi Simelane from taking office as National Director for Public Prosecutions.
Three separate bids have been launched and could end up derailing Simelane’s bid to become the country’s next NPA boss.
The General Bar Council and the Public Protector have both been approached to considering complaints made against him while DA leader Helen Zille is seeking legal advice claiming that Simelane’s appointment was unlawful.
