Phiyega 'will deal' with Mdluli

2012-06-17 13:15

Johannesburg - New top cop Mangwashi Phiyega said she will comment on the investigation into suspended crime intelligence head lieutenant-general Richard Mdludli after she has read the files on him, City Press reported on Sunday.

"I will be dealing with it."

Phiyega said documents seen in newspapers were "adulterated".

"Now that I'm here, they will show me the real files and maybe when you talk to me 12 months down the line, I will be able to say I did see the real files and what we were seeing wasn't the real thing," she told the publication.

Phiyega would also reach out to the Independent Police Investigative Directorate, the unit that investigates cases of police misconduct.

"No doctor can doctor herself. It's critical and important to have the directorate to police us and to regulate us. I really appreciate its existence."

Mdluli remains suspended from the police service pending various court actions.

Freedom Under Law has filed an application to have criminal charges - ranging from murder to corruption - reinstated against Mdluli.

Next month, Mdluli also faces a disciplinary hearing by the SA Police Service.

Phiyega was appointed to her position by President Jacob Zuma this week.

    12 months!!!!! Why so long

      Fred - 2012-06-17 13:35

      Because any corruption charge in the anc must be spun out over at least 10 years, hopefully to allow the accused to kick the bucket before then, or manage to have all the evidence "lost". So 12 months is quite quick in these circumstances. But that will probably be just for comment, not action, so don't hold your breath.

      she wasnt appointed to oversee mdluli, she's got over 200 000 police to oversee

      What's depressing about this story is that they still refer to this butth0le Mdluli as suspended crime "intelligence" head lieutenant-general. Mdluli intelligent! please! and Phiyega says she needs 12 months to "see the real files"! what do glasses take that long to make? or her guide dog and walking stick has yet to be delivered at her residence? She's really reinforcing the statement; justice is blind.

      @Kingpin Lets give her a chance. It is almost impossible for her to do worse than the last 2 turkeys.

    She was appointed cause she has no police experience it will take longer then 12 months

  • jaysonpaul.beckwith - 2012-06-17 13:43

    She says, no doctor can doctor herself. I say no person without a day being a cop, can run the cops.

      rbphiri - 2012-06-17 16:10

      She watched a lot of cops and robbers movies and thought to herself; Hey this is easy, I can do this, all I need is a blue uniform and for butthole cele to be fired.

    Fred. Usisidenge ne. The is a difference between the ANC and SAPS.

      Fred - 2012-06-17 17:05

      Really ?????? You have to be kidding.

  • Jacqui - 2012-06-17 14:03

    Oh!no! she is waiting for the real files. Starting so soon already and I had such high hopes.

  • Phae - 2012-06-17 14:11

    This Queen of Cliché's is going to drive us mad and give the media a whole lot of ammunition against her silly interviews. I fear this one is going to be another manipulator of information to serve the ANC's cover up agenda's. Not impressed with her already.

  • Sonwabile Langa-Nomvalo - 2012-06-17 14:22

    12 months? Doctor can doctor himself? need not be a drunkard to run a shebeen? the less we require is a political puppet that makes headlines with these idioms, & grantiloquent terms...Productivity is what we demand.

      kathy.mackay.967 - 2012-06-17 20:53

      Couldnt agree more, but the teabag took the cake !!!!!!

    Gen Bheki came in and introduced the best language for criminals: Shoot to kill. May you kindly take over from what was done by Gen Bheki:... aim the head of a criminal, if you shoot the leg you are releaved from your duties!

    "Phiyega said documents seen in newspapers were "adulterated". Now dear Rhia'tjie, on what basis, if you haven't as of yet seen the 'real' files, can you presume newspaper reports to be adulterated? You are, it seems, prejudiced already and all your wonderful qualifications and certificates appear to failed in distilling a sense of objectivity and impassionate reasoning in you. No wonder then... "Now that I'm here, they will show me the real files and maybe when you talk to me 12 months down the line, I will be able to say I did see the real files and what we were seeing wasn't the real thing," she told the publication."...'what we are seeing wasn't the real thing'. And how do you know? How can you presume? On what basis can you make this silly statement? You are just - and sadly - right from start as SAPS Commissioner fouling your future position as Commissioner and setting yourself up as yet another failed ANC crony appointed by Zuma. AND if you are such a diligent and effective administrator (albeit sadly, with no POLICE experience), why, Oh Why, 12 MONTHS? The task is urgent and you have no time. AND we have seen in the newspapers FUL's court papers as well as that of the respondents. WE ARE NOT FOOLS AND DON'T YOU DARE MAKE THAT VERY FOOLSIH PRESSUMPTION! YOU'LL BE CRUTINIZDED VERY CLOSELY. You fail public scrutiny and media scrutiny and our expectations based on recent history authored by Zuma, will be corroborated! Whatching you, Rhea'tjie, watching you!

    Freedom Under Law's existence a blessing. Madame-Boss' comments in the interviews she is conducting shows exactly what political appointee must do: dance to the master's tune. Lt-General Mdluli's suspension would have been lifted by now shuu!!! Mzansi fo sho, so they say. Nhlanhla Mkhwanazi get ready after Mangaung your services might be needed don't despair law abiding citizens are behind you, your efforts are appreciated and noticed keep well my Lieutenant.

  • dick.muller - 2012-06-17 16:13

    I she hasn't yet read the files, how does she know that the information that has appeared in the press is "adulterated" ???? Just another spear buddy, it seems...

  • Lacrimose - 2012-06-17 18:07

    Allow us regular N24 readers to help you out, Ms Phiyega. All the real files have vanished and been replaced with doctored versions. Much like all the witnesses for the inquest will also vanish and so on. So now you have your diary clear for the next 12 months, can you please do something about routing out the remaining naughty people in the police force and doing something meaningful to adequately equip and reward the remaining 'good guys'.
