The Democratic Alliance said the Minister
of Correctional Services Sbu Ndebele must explain the sudden departure of
National Commissioner Tom Moyane.
National Commissioner Moyane retired on
DA MP of Correctional Services James Selfe
has said it is a great pity to lose Moyane from the department as he has
provided some stability after having four national commissioners since 2007.
Selfe said it is for this reason that they
cannot fathom why his contract was suddenly terminated and Monyane was replaced
“Mr Monyane in fact only turned 60 in
January and still had two years left of his contract, if his age was of such
great concern to the minister then he should have retired him in January, the
timing is rather suspect,” added Selfe.
He also added that the minister must
explain the reasoning behind this decision and the fact that Mr Moyane appeared
not to have known of his retirement.
