Phiyega may be suspended pending inquiry
President Jacob Zuma has informed Phiyega of his intention to institute an inquiry to look into the “allegations of misconduct and/or lack of fitness for the office that she occupies and/or her ability to execute her duties efficiently with regard thereto, or any other conduct which may have a bearing on her position as head of the police service”, the presidency said in a statement on Friday.
Zuma had also afforded Phiyega an opportunity to make written representations to him as to why she should not be placed on suspension pending the outcome of the inquiry.
“The president received and considered the report of Judge [Ian] Farlam pertaining to the Marikana Commission of Inquiry and has also received the comments of General Phiyega on the recommendations and findings contained therein,” the presidency said. – ANA.
