National police Commissioner Riah Phiyega has suspended acting Crime Intelligence boss Chris Ngcobo with immediate effect.

Ngcobo was acting in the place of former Crime Intelligence boss Richard Mdluli

In a short media statement Phiyega announced the suspension of Ngcobo.

“During a vetting process, discrepancies were found between the declaration made by Major General Chris Ngcobo and official records pertaining to his qualifications.

Major General Ngcobo, Acting Divisional Commissioner of Crime Intelligence, has so far failed to satisfactorily explain the discrepancies.

His top secret security clearance was therefore denied. As such, I placed him on special leave yesterday and instructed that criminal investigations and disciplinary action against him be initiated.

I want to ensure that this matter is dealt with swiftly,” said Phiyega.

Major General (Dr) Bongiwe Zulu has been appointed acting Divisional Commissioner for Crime Intelligence until further notice.
