gerrie nel afriforum – gerrie nel recently resigned from NPA – National Prosecuting Authority to join afriforum in what seems to be a mistake of his life . This is what gerrie nel had to say about afriforum
During a media briefing at AfriForum’s headquarters in Centurion, Nel told reporters that he had decided to leave the NPA because he wanted to make a difference in the lives of South Africans through a new prosecuting unit in the civil rights organisation.
“I’m not leaving the NPA because I’m upset, I’m creating something new,” Nel said.
Nel had been in talks with AfriForum, which is linked to the Solidarity trade union, for more than a year. As discussions continued and plans began developing, he found himself attracted to the idea of starting a unit that would make a difference by prosecuting both big and small cases.
“When we started talking about this particular unit and the concept and the possibilities, and the need for it, that is when I decided to chew on it and decided to make it my own.”
“All along it was very difficult for me to resign from my position as a prosecutor, it wasn’t easy. It’s still not easy even as I’m standing here. I am a prosecutor at heart.”
