Lieutenant-General Johanna Nkomo is 'unqualified' to hold her position, as Tshwane's new metro police chief, according to the ruling party. The African National Congress is calling for Nkomo to be removed by the 'corrupt' DA administration that appointed her.
The ANC is calling for Lieutenant-General Johanna Nkomo to be removed from her position as Tshwane's metro police chief.
The party alleges that the first black female to preside over this position is 'unqualified', with Bafuze Yabo, head of communications for the region, saying:
“She was appointed by the corrupt DA administration, despite her lack of the requisite qualification and skills for the position of the chief of police in the city of Tshwane.”
Yabo explained that the law required the chief of police to posses a traffic management diploma and, therefor, could not address parades or even wear the uniform.
According to The Citizen, Nkomo had been appointed thanks to her connection to the former Tshwane mayor, with Yabo claiming:
“It is strongly suspected that she is related to the former mayor Solly ‘Posterboy of corruption’ Msimanga.”
The ANC is now calling for her to be removed from office or they will 'instantly' get law enforcement and even the Public Protector involved.
Briefly.co.za gathers that Nkomo is frequently absent from work due to health issues, further inciting the ANC's rage:
“We now suspect that she might have failed to disclose her health at the time of her engagement with the city and earns a salary of almost R1.8 million yearly.”
