Durban metro police demand boss' head
Durban - Samwu members have called for eThekwini Municipality metro police head Eugene Nzama to be replaced.
"We demand that the post of the head be advertised and a competent candidate be appointed as soon as possible," read a memorandum the SA Municipal Workers’ Union submitted to the municipality on Wednesday.
Scores of metro police officers picketed outside police headquarters on Wednesday and submitted their memorandum to councillor Zandile Gumede.
Samwu questioned why Nzama’s contract was not advertised.
It also called for two metro police officials to be suspended pending the investigation into their qualifications and the abuse of council property.
The union accused Nzama of allowing police officers who abused council cars by fetching their children from schools and doing groceries.
Nzama was not immediately available to comment.
