In the article: Policeman with pending criminal charges stands to become divisional commissioner of crime detection , Major General Ntebo "Jan" Mabula, the current North West SAPS deputy crime detection head, was reportedly interviewed for the post of divisional commissioner of crime detection, and received a recommendation from a senior police official.

On Thursday, Minister of Police Bheki Cele, and national commissioner General Khehla Sitole, will announce the appointments of divisional commissioners from Crime Intelligence, detective services, protection and security services, as well as the provincial commissioner of the Free State.

Mabula and his team from the North West have previously been investigated by the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) for allegedly torturing a man who was in custody, which has resulted in pending criminal and disciplinary cases against him. Mabula is still under investigation by IPID for the death, by suffocation, of police informer Solomon Nengwane.
