South African President Cyril Ramaphosa has appointed Silas Ramaite as acting chief prosecutor.
He replaces Shaun Abrahams, who left office after the country’s top court ruled on Monday that he was not validly appointed and was a beneficiary of former President Jacob Zuma’s abuse of power.
The presidency said in a statement that Mr Ramaphosa would appoint a permanent chief prosecutor within 90 days.
Mr. Ramaite is the National Prosecution Authority’s deputy national director responsible for administration and office for witness protection. He has held that role since 2003.
