According to reports from Eyewitness News Hawks spokesperson McIntosh Polela learned he was fired through the media.

"Neither my lawyer nor myself have received a letter saying I have been dismissed from the SAPS,"  Polela was quoted saying in an interview with Eyewitness News.

Polela was suspended in October last year after he tweeted: "I trust Jub Jub's supporters gave him a jar of Vaseline to take to prison." A tweet posted after the conviction of musician Molemo Jub Jub Maarohanye.

The Star newspaper reported that Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa revealed Polela's dismissal in a written response to a question from the Democratic Alliance in Parliament this week. In the response it stated that Polela was dismissed on March 27, 2013.
