The story: Former acting national police commissioner General Khomotso Phahlane has allegedly been fired from the SA Police Service, according to media reports.

What we know: News24 contacted national police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo for comment. "I cannot confirm or deny, as these are internal processes," he said. News24 also contacted Phahlane himself, who declined to comment.

The background: Phahlane was suspended in June 2017 with immediate effect and is also facing fraud charges stemming from a 2016 tender of R86 million awarded to Instrumentation Traffic Law Enforcement, owned by millionaire Vimpie Manthatha.
