- News have leaked that points to corruption in the higher ranks of the South African Police Force
- One of the names linked to the allegations is that of SA's Top Cop Commissioner Sitole
- This shocking reveal comes shortly after Sitole claimed that less than 5% of the Police Force is corrupt
According to a breaking news report by Eyewitness News, at least 15 top members of the South African Police Force are involved in an internal dispute regarding corruption and fraud.
The National Police Commisioner Khehla Sitole is one of the names linked to the shocking news.
Briefly.co.za learned that Brigadier Leonora Phetlhe from Crime Intelligence got a subpoenae that orders Commissioner Sitole and about 25 other officer of the South African Police Force to testify in her case - the case is about unfair labour practice against the SAPS.
Phetlhe's case is built around her allegations that the top cops has conspired against her and that they are covering up the corrupt and fraudulent actions of a number of police generals. She was accused of forging Pat Mokoshane's security clearance and was suspended.
This news comes just after Commissioner Sitole stated that less than 5% of the South African Police Force is corrupt.
Phetlhe is fighting back to not only redeem her good name, but expose the criminal acts of those who she claims conspired against her.
She stated that many generals should be facing serious corruption and fraud charges, but that they are being protected from within the force and are still on duty.
Phetlhe further stated that there are members of the Crime Intelligence who abuse their privileges with secret service accounts.
The South African Police has said that they are dealing with the matter internally and the case will not be discussed with the public.
Many South Africans feel that the case should be handled with transparency if the SAPS has nothing to hide.
South Africans responded to the news on social media and it shows that some are not surprised to hear rumours of corruption in the higher ranks.
It is not sure if the South African Police Force will give any further details on the case or if there will an attempt to kill the story before South Africans find out more about it.
Of course, there is old saying "Innocent until proven guilty".
