Advocacy group, Accountability Now, says it’s concerned that the NPA doesn’t have the capacity to handle PPE corruption cases. The SIU referred 386 people to the NPA for prosecution following an 18-month long investigation into government’s COVID-19 contracts. The prosecuting authority must now add these cases to its workload while it barely copes with state capture-related work.
Accountability Now Director, Advocate Paul Hoffman, says the NPA will struggle to bring the culprits to book. He explains why.
