Durban - The KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson who resigned amid allegations that he had a fake matric certificate has denied his qualification is invalid, The Star reported on Friday.

"It is not true that my certificate is fake," Colonel Vincent Mdunge was quoted as saying.

"I am currently consulting my legal team and will take this to court."

He said it would have been impossible for him to serve in the police for 27 years with an invalid certificate.

On Thursday, Colonel Jay Naicker said the allegations against Mdunge surfaced when the criminal and academic records of SA Police Service employees were checked. Mdunge subsequently resigned.

Mdunge told The Star's sister newspaper Isolezwe he did not quit because of the pending criminal investigation against him. He claimed it was a coincidence that he resigned at the same time that the allegations surfaced.

On Friday, Naicker told Sapa he did not know of Mdunge's intentions to take the matter to court.

"It's his decision and he doesn't have to notify us of it," said Naicker.
