23 August

The City of Cape Town Chief of the Metro Police, General Bongani Jonas, has been suspended on Friday 22 August until the end of September 2008 in the light of criminal charges he is facing in the court in Carletonville and an ongoing internal investigation into related matters.

Peter Cronje from the City of Cape Town says that after the end of his suspension it will be reviewed.

“ At the same time there is an internal investigation which has not been concluded into related matters. The suspension is on full pay and it does not imply that he is either innocent or guilty”

“He and the city manger Achmat Ebrahim, came to an agreement about his suspension today in the interests of service delivery, the public’s confidence in the metro and the city’s residents”

While he is away Deputy Chief Pinky Mathabathe will be acting Chief.
