Mlambo has ruled that Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa must appoint a new NDPP in the next 60 days.
Freedom Under Law, Corruption Watch and the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (Casac) had gone to court seeking an order declaring Nxasana’s removal invalid.
Before that, an inquiry into his fitness to hold office was abruptly halted without explanation.
The organizations want his removal set aside and the golden handshake repaid.
During the hearing in November, the court heard that Zuma tried to “bully” Nxasana out of office by using an inquiry into his fitness.
