Judge recommends that Cele be fired

2012-05-24 22:38
Pietermaritzburg - President Jacob Zuma should fire suspended national police commissioner Bheki Cele as he is unfit to hold office, according to Judge Jake Moloi.

This is the finding of the board of inquiry into two controversial police lease deals and whether Cele should be stripped of his post.

The recommendation is contained in a 113-page report submitted to Zuma on Sunday.

The presidency said on Thursday that Zuma was still consulting about the report and that talk of a successor was premature.

Cele's spokesperson, Vuyo Mkhize, told The Witness the suspended police chief would consider "all available avenues to challenge the validity of the report, including a review application to the High Court".
