SAPS in Dire Need of Competent Leadership

23 October 2013    

 

The latest fiasco involving crime intelligence boss Major-General Chris Ngcobo is the clear indication that SAPS needs competent leadership.

 

IFP spokesperson on Police, MP Velaphi Ndlovu stated that "The National Police Commissioner must explain what processes have been implemented in order to address the vetting problems that have clearly been plaguing the crime intelligence unit. If the leader of crime intelligence himself lies about his qualifications and this is not picked up when the vetting process happens, it puts the security of the country at risk"

 

"It has become even more evident that there are many people who are public servants with fake qualifications. A process to verify the credentials of all government employees must be instigated. Corruption must be rooted out from all spheres of government and risk management strategies should also be considered when recruiting for government positions," said Ndlovu

 

The IFP calls on the minister of Police to ensure that the backlog in the vetting process is attended to urgently.
