The position of National Director of Public Prosecutions (NDPP) has been something of a poisoned chalice in recent years. The last four incumbents have been at the centre of political controversy of some sort. Two (Bulelani Ngcuka and Vusi Pikoli) were dismissed by successive Presidents and have challenged their dismissals with a measure of success; a third (Mokotedi Mpshe) faced heavy public criticism for the decision to withdraw charges against the President, Mr Jacob Zuma; and the fourth (Menzi Simelane), who is the incumbent, faced questions over whether he is fit and proper for appointment as NDPP.
