Jiba remained steadfast that she had discharged her functions with impeccable personal integrity, never accepted a bribe or acted corruptly, and was not persuaded by anyone to continue or discontinue any prosecution.

Jiba, who was considered former president Jacob Zuma’s go-to person in the NPA, was axed by President Cyril Ramaphosa earlier in 2019 together with former special director of public prosecutions Lawrence Mrwebi after they were found to be unfit for office by an inquiry chaired by retired Constitutional Court justice Yvonne Mokgoro.
