phiyegaANA reports that the SA Policing Union (Sapu) on Tuesday said it was concerned that the term of office of suspended national police commissioner Riah Phiyega could end before her long-running disciplinary matter was concluded.  

Phiyega was suspended more than a year ago by President Jacob Zuma.  This came after the Farlam commission into the 2012 deaths at Marikana recommended that Phiyega should face an inquiry into her fitness to hold office.  Sapu spokesperson, Oscar Skommere, noted that Phiyega's five-year term expires next year.
