Cape Town – The National Assembly will on Tuesday consider Setlhomamaru Dintwe’s candidacy for the inspector general post.

This is the fourth time Parliament has tried to fill the position, which has been vacant for almost two years, after Faith Radebe's term of office ended in 2015.

Parliament’s intelligence sub-committee initially recommended former ANC MP Cecil Burgess for the watchdog post. This was abandoned when the ruling party could not get enough votes to pass it.

The committee said Dintwe impressed all the members of the sub-committee, which had been in charge of the interviews.

He had been unanimously agreed to, the committee said.

The recommendation needs to be approved by two-thirds of the members of the National Assembly.
