NPATimesLIVE reports that fired senior prosecutor Nomgcobo Jiba has lodged court papers to challenge retired Constitutional Court judge Yvonne Mokgoro's report, which found her unfit for office.  

Jiba filed an application in the Western Cape High Court on Wednesday to review and set aside the report.  President Cyril Ramaphosa axed Jiba in April based on the findings and recommendations of Mokgoro's report which indicated that Jiba's conduct, on multiple occasions, had shown a "lack of conscientiousness".  In the notice of motion, Jiba asked for Ramaphosa and the National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) to reinstate her to the position of deputy national director of prosecutions "with all associated employment benefits with immediate effect".  Jiba has asked the court to interdict or prohibit the president and the NDPP from filling the position until her review process has been concluded.  Her lawyer Zola Majavu commented:  "All she asks for is to be treated with fairness and consistency."
