Johannesburg - South Africa's chief of police Riah Phiyega's PR consultant Makhosini Nkosi secretly runs a brothel from a quiet suburban house in Johannesburg.

According to the Sunday Times, Nkosi takes a cut every time a client hires a prostitute at his premises. The prostitutes apparently freely ply their trade from the house, where Nkosi illegally operates a bar and massage parlour.

Nkosi has admitted to this and to running adverts on sex websites. He said he calls it an adult lodge for discreet encounters but that it's an "interesting B&B".

However, Nkosi also runs his communications company, Makhosini Nkosi & Associates from the back of the house. It is here that he regularly interacts with clients including National Police Commissioner Phiyega, the National Prosecuting Authority, the Black Business Council, and the Association of Black Securities and Investment Professionals.

Phiyega under fire

This is not the first time that Phiyeg has found herself under scrutiny since she became national police commissioner in June.

Earlier this month, SAPA reported that the DA had called for Phiyega to be fired. "[She] is not fit to lead the SA Police Service [SAPS]," said DA MP Dianne Kohler-Barnard.

She said Phiyega had been hired because of her managerial skills, but that she was failing to deliver.

The DA intended writing to President Jacob Zuma to ask him to institute a board of inquiry into her fitness and capability to head the police.

She was referring to Phiyega's appointment of Major General Bethuel Mondli Zuma as Gauteng police commissioner.

The appointment was later withdrawn when it was found that Zuma faced a charge of drinking and driving.
