President Cyril Ramaphosa is announcing who will be the new National Director of Public Prosecutions on Tuesday.

In November an eight-member panel led by cabinet minister Jeff Radebe interviewed 11 shortlisted candidates for the position. After the interviews, the panel came up with five prospective names, out of which Ramaphosa must make his decision.

The candidates are: advocates Shamila Batohi, Simphiwe Mlotshwa, Siyabulela Mapoma, Andrea Johnson and Rodney de Kock.

The Sunday Times reported last month that the president was said to favour Batohi because she "checked all the boxes" for the post.
