Tshwane appoints acting police chief

2011-11-24 20:24
Pretoria - Steven Ngobeni has been appointed as acting chief of the Tshwane metro police, the city said on Thursday.

It said a suitable candidate for a permanent appointment could not be found during recent interviews.

"The post will be re-advertised," the city's spokesperson Pieter de Necker said in a statement.

Ngobeni was the city's protection services director.

The announcement was made after a council meeting on Thursday.

The Tshwane metro police department has not had a chief since 2008 when it was decided to create a strategic executive director position to oversee both the police department and the emergency services.

Earlier in the year, the city decided to revert back to its old management structure and the position for metro police chief was advertised.

Deputy metro police chief Ndumiso Jaca has been placed 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.

He was one of the four shortlisted candidates who were interviewed for the position of metro police chief on October 30.
