Zuma to elect new police commissioner

By Mandisi Tyulu

President Jacob Zuma is set to name a new national police commissioner in about a month’s time, meaning that suspended commissioner Jackie Selebi, who is facing charges of corruption, could be jobless from tomorrow.

Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa was quoted in the media that Selebi’s contract ends today.

Selebi’s original contract should have expired last year, but former president Thabo Mbeki extended it for 12 months.

As president, it is Zuma’s prerogative to hire a new national police boss.
