He is noted for instigating criminal charges against disgraced South African police commissioner Jackie Selebi and ANC president Jacob Zuma.

On 24 September 2007 President Thabo Mbeki suspended Pikoli in terms of Section 12(6)(a) of the National Prosecution Act 32 of 1998, citing an “irretrievable break down in the working relationship between the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development and the NDPP.” Three days later the South African Broadcasting Corporation claimed that a warrant was issued on 10 September by the NPA for the arrest of the head of the South African Police and Interpol, Jackie Selebi – a close confidant of Mbeki. According to SABC the warrant was secured by Pikoli, before Pikoli was suspended by the country’s President Mbeki. Journalists at the Mail & Guardian subsequently provided supporting evidence to the claim that Mbeki had suspended Pikoli as part of a bid to shield Police Commissioner Selebi. The leader of South Africa’s opposition Democratic Alliance party, Helen Zille, said that the suspension of Pikoli was a “serious development” that needed further explanation: “The country needs to know why Pikoli has been suspended.” Human Sciences Research Council political commentator Adam Habib said:
In 2005 he was appointed to head up the National Prosecuting Authority as the National Director of Public Prosecutions.
