The newly appointed National Police Commissioner General Riah Phiyega says she does not have a conflict of interests in relation to IT Company XON.
XON Chief Executive Carel Coetzee said Riah Phiyega had no role in SAPS prior to her appointment, thus no conflict existed then, and no conflict exists now given the fact that she has instructed Kapela to sell her share.
Phiyega was the director and shareholder in Kapela Capital,a Company which is contract to supply IT equipment to the SAPS.
The Democratic Alliance`s Dianne Kohler Barnard says it is shocking that Phiyega`s involvement with the company was kept a secret.
She also said that Riah Phiyega must be called before the Portfolio Committee of Police to explain how this information was omitted on her cv.
