DA: Minister of Police must fire Commissioner Riah Phiyega

Lusanda Bill
12 June 2014

The Democratic Alliance has called on Minister of Police Nkosinathi Nhleko to fire National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega as she has no actual policing experience. 

DA MP of Police Dianne Kohler Barnard said Minister Nhleko needs to commit to improving the state of the police service that has been in rapid decline over the last five years. 

Barnard said Phiyega’s appointment has been disastrous from the onset.  Throughout the Marikana crisis she showed her lack of knowledge of policing and failed to acknowledged police’s responsibility and the death of 44 people, going as far as saying they did not kill them.

“No progress has been made in addressing police brutality, she has failed to resolve the on-going crisis in Saps and no decisive action has been taken against Saps members who have been found to have criminal records.  She herself has been subject of an investigation by the IPID for allegedly defeating the ends of justice” Barnard added.
