The Democratic Alliance has once
again called for the Minister of Police Nkosinathi Nhleko to be removed from
This as on Friday the High Court in
Pretoria found that the suspension of Gauteng Hawks boss Major-General Shadrack
Sibiya was unconstitutional and the appointment of Major-General Elias Dlamini
to replace Sibiya is invalid and unlawful.
DA MP of Police Dianne Kohler
Barnard said Minister Nhleko is not fit for office.
Barnard added that the DA believes
that, now more than ever, Parliament must hold the Police Minister to account.
He should ultimately lose his job for setting in motion a purge that he knew to
be unlawful and unconstitutional from the very beginning, but did it anyway to
protect Zuma Inc.
She further said throughout this
debacle, the Police Minister has demonstrated his disregard for the rule of law
and due process by suspending Dramat without consulting Parliament.
