Johannesburg - Major General Nhlamvu Elias Dlamini remains the acting head of the Hawks in Gauteng, despite Major General Shadrack Sibiya being officially sacked last week.

"The status quo still remains," said Hawks spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi.

Sibiya was officially fired on August 31, but his lawyer has indicated previously that he intends appealing this.

On Sunday, President Jacob Zuma said a new approach was needed to fight crime in South Africa.

Musa Zondi, spokesperson for Police Minister Nkosinathi Nhleko, told News24 that there was a need to make sure people were in full-time positions, but that work towards fighting crime continued.

The head office of the Hawks, which deal with priority crimes, also has an acting head in Major General Mthandazo Ntlemeza after Anwa Dramat resigned.

Dramat and Sibiya were implicated in the illegal deportation of five Zimbabweans wanted by police there.

Sibiya denied any part in it, but an inquiry found it unlikely he would not have been aware of the renditions, based on cellphone records and him being at the Hawks offices when Zimbabwean authorities were meeting with Dramat.
