Zuma fires Cele
12 June 2012
President Jacob Zuma has fired National Police Commissioner Bheki Cele.
The announcement was made at a press conference at the Union Buildings in Pretoria a short while ago.
Mangwashi Victoria Phiyega has been appointed as his replacement and will be the first woman to ever hold the highest office in the SAPS.
President Zuma says that a Board of Inquiry set up to review if Cele was fit to hold office or not has found a number of deficiencies in terms of administration.
