Cele report handed to Zuma

Cape Town - President Jacob Zuma has received the report of a commission of inquiry into suspended police commissioner Bheki Cele, his office said on Monday.

"The board of inquiry chairperson Judge Jakes Moloi presented the report to the president yesterday, 20 May 2012," presidential spokesperson Mac Maharaj said in a statement.

"The president is studying the report and its findings and will make his response known in due course."

Maharaj could not be reached for further comment.

The commission was appointed by Zuma in November to probe Cele's fitness to remain in office and allegations of misconduct relating to two leases for new police headquarters in Pretoria and Durban, which the public protector declared unlawful.

The team leading evidence against Cele called for his dismissal, but he has denied any wrongdoing.
