Probe into Tshwane top cop continues

2011-11-02 17:34

Pretoria - An Independent Complaints Directorate (ICD) probe into claims of criminal conduct by Tshwane metro deputy police chief Ndumiso Jaca is continuing.

"We are still investigating the matter. I think we will wrap it up in a month or so," ICD spokesperson Moses Dlamini said on Wednesday.

"Our timeline largely depends on the level of co-operation we get from everyone involved. We want to speak to all the parties during our investigations."

Dlamini declined to say whether Jaca was co-operating with the police watchdog's investigators.

In October, Tshwane mayor, Kgosientso Ramokgopa placed Jaca on three month's special leave amid allegations that he used the same number plate for his motorbike and car.

Jaca is also being investigated by the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) and faces an internal investigation by the Tshwane Metro.

Municipal manager Jason Ngobeni, who is leading the city's probe was not immediately available for comment.

On September 16, the case was also reported to the Alberton police station by the Justice Project SA (JPSA) in terms of Section 68 of the National Road Traffic Act 1996.

The SA Police Service has handed the matter over to the ICD.

Displaying false number plates is punishable by a fine or jail term of up to three years.

JPSA spokesperson Howard Dembovsky said on Wednesday his organisation had supplied its findings to the ICD.

Jaca was one of four shortlisted candidates to be interviewed on Monday for the position of Tshwane metro police chief.

The city's Metro spokesperson Pieter de Necker said it was not certain when the metro would reveal who had secured the police chief post.

Dembovsky said Jaca should not have been shortlisted as a candidate, considering he was under investigation for a criminal offence.

"Interviewing Jaca for an even bigger position is an irregularity," said Dembovsky.
