KZN Hawks boss: no word yet

2012-02-18 00:00

SILENCE surrounds KZN Hawks boss Major-General Johan Booysen since he responded to a notice of intention to suspend him, which was served last Sunday.

Booysen said yesterday that he had responded to the notice on Monday morning and could not comment further.

While it is believed that the steps against Booysen relate to failing to act against the alleged atrocities at the unit, he told The Witness earlier this week that he did not know why the Hawks intended to suspend him.

Spokesperson ­McIntosh Polela said it was an internal matter and the Hawks had to afford Booysen the respect to deal with it as an internal matter.

Booysen’s attorney, Carl van der Merwe, also declined to discuss the case.
