The Democratic Alliance has called
on National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega to be fired.
DA MP of Police Dianne Kohler
Barnard said her latest blunder this weekend over senior appointments shows
that she is totally out of her depth and is taking the South African Police
Service down with her.
Barnard added that the DA has
writing to President Zuma today to request that he institute a board of inquiry
into Riah Phiyega’s fitness for office and capacity to perform her official
“Commissioner Phiyega was hired
because of her much-vaunted managerial skills and on this basis she should be
fired for her clear lack thereof.
Phiyega has shown her amateurish
knowledge of policing throughout the Marikana crisis and now it appears that
she lacks managerial skills too.” Barnard said.
