CAPE TOWN- The National Prosecution Authority (NPA) head of prosecution to inform him whether he will be prosecuted for corruption or not.

In Parliament’s Standing Committee on Public Accounts (Scopa) on Wednesday night, Abrahams refused to reveal to MPs exactly what his decision is, not until at least he informs Zuma.

The Constitutional Court on Wednesday dismissed an application by the council for Advancement of South Africa Constitution an attempt to delay Abraham’s announcement on the matter, the application tried to block the announcement of the decision to whether to prosecute Zuma or not.

Abraham’s as seen as keeping his announcement to himself, even when MP’s pressed for more answers.

“As to the Zuma matter, yes it is correct, I’m in a position to announce my decision in respect of whether the prosecution against the former president should proceed or not. Regrettably, I can’t give this committee a clue, I must first inform Mr Zuma about what my decision is.”

Abrahams has a busy week as he is expected to hold a high level meeting with acting Hawks head Yolisa Matakata, where investigators will give a briefing to state prosecutor about the progress of their investigations into state capture during former president Jacob Zuma’s term in office.
