“We will consult with the prosecution team and then take the matter forward,” national director of public prosecutions Mxolisi Nxasana told Parliament’s portfolio committee on justice.
Deputy director Silas Ramaite added that senior prosecuting staff were “agitated” about the outcome of the case.
“We will meet with the prosecution team, do a post mortem of the various sentences,” he said.
“Senior people in the NPA are actually quite agitated, wrongly so I would say.”
They were responding to a question from African Christian Democratic Party MP Steve Swart.
