Johannesburg – Major General Nhlamvu Elias Dlamini has been appointed acting head of the Hawks in Gauteng, after Major General Shadrack Sibiya was suspended, the crime-fighting body said on Thursday.

Acting national head Major General Mthandazo Ntlemeza made the appointment on Wednesday, spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi said.

Dlamini, currently cluster commander in Pienaarsrivier, would be acting in Sibiya's place.

Sibiya was handed a notice of intention of suspension from the post on 5 January. An application to get reasons for this was struck from the roll of the Labour Court in Johannesburg last week Wednesday.

He submitted reasons why he should not be suspended and the notice was withdrawn.

Sibiya was then suspended on Tuesday, with full pay.

The move was related to his alleged involvement in facilitating the illegal rendition of Zimbabweans in November 2010.

Earlier this week Mulaudzi said the suspension would last as long as the investigation took and said the Hawks would ensure all processes were followed.
