CPF’s criminal chair: Mchunu awaits probe report

2013-10-28 00:00

SAFETY and Security MEC Willies Mchunu has wasted no time with the investigation of the appointment of Desmond Mntambo,

KwaZulu-Natal’s Community Policing Forum (CPF) chairperson.

This follows the revelation that Mntambo is a convicted criminal. As reported by Weekend Witness, Mntambo has been sentenced to jail time for crimes ranging from culpable homicide, theft and robbery to possession of drugs. Documents show that these crimes date from 1979 right through to 1988.

In light of this information, Mchunu launched an investigation into the matter and is already awaiting feedback.

Mchunu’s spokesperson Kwanele Ncalane said: “The MEC had already written letters to the HOD of Community Safety and Liaison and the Provincial CPF offices. When the reports … are done, the MEC will announce his next step.”

Asked to comment on the situation, Mntambo said: “… I have no comment.”
