Shaun Abrahams will know his fate on Monday

Mxolisi Nxasana speaks to the media after the Constitutional Court ruling on 13 August 2018

Meanwhile, former National Director of Public Prosecutions, Mxolisi Nxasana says he is disappointed that the court did not reinstate him to his former position.

- Barry Bateman, EWN reporterMadlanga found that Nxasana was effectively bought out, which compromised the independence of the office of the NDPP.

Abrahams - and the NPA - sought leave to appeal the high court's order while Nxasana sought leave to appeal the high court's refusal of his explanatory affidavit over the R17.3 million.

"I'm glad about the judgement".

In his judgment, Justice Mbuyiseli Madlanga said it is an imperative of the court to ensure the independence of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA). "Abrahams was a beneficiary of an abuse of power", Judge Mbuyiseli Madlanga, who criticised Zuma for buying Nxasana out of office with a 17 million rand ($1 million) payout.

Madlanga said ordering Nxasana to return as National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) would prolong instability at the NPA.

The High Court then ruled that then deputy president Cyril Ramaphosa should be the one to appoint a new head for the NPA within 60 days.

Zuma faced a string of corruption allegations during his time in office, and Abrahams was accused by the opposition and rights groups of shielding the president from prosecution.

The court further ruled that Nxasana repay the R10 million he has already received as part of his settlement.

This initiated another court case where Zuma sought to overturn the high court's finding which had, in essence, reduced him to a lame-duck president.

Abrahams's appeal had stalled this process and it was revealed in June this year that Ramaphosa was waiting for the court's judgment on Abrahams before making a decision.

On Monday, the court ordered that Ramaphosa appoint a new NDPP within 90 days of its order.
