NPANews24 reports that National Director of Public Prosecutions advocate Shamila Batohi has denied that the resignation of Investigating Directorate (ID) boss advocate Hermione Cronje was a result of "interpersonal relations".

She has also denied that the organisation was "in a crisis". Cronje asked to prematurely step down from her position, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) confirmed last week. "The NPA is not in a crisis. There is no widespread sabotage of the ID," said Batohi at a media briefing on Monday. She added that Cronje's resignation was a "culmination of various factors". However, Batohi declined to go into the details of what had led to the resignation. Yet she added that in high-pressure and high-stakes environments, occasional disagreements were normal. Cronje was not at the media briefing. Batohi reported that Cronje had expressed a wish to vacate her post for some time, and that Batohi had asked her to remain. However, she later realised it would be "in the interest of all concerned" if Cronje left her office. Batohi added that leadership changes were normal, saying a new appointment could benefit the ID.
