phiyegaCity Press reports that it has leant that the board of inquiry into suspended National Police Commissioner Riah Phiyega’s fitness to hold office has found that she is not fit to hold office and should be dismissed.  

The inquiry, headed by Judge Cornelis Claassen, apparently also found that Phiyega lied to the Marikana Commission of Inquiry, headed by retired Judge Ian Farlam.  Phiyega is challenging the findings of the Farlam commission.  The board of inquiry concluded on 3 June and the report was finalised on 13.  November.  The findings have not yet been communicated to President Jacob Zuma.  City Press has also learnt that Phiyega only became aware of the findings “informally” – and she is already planning to have the report reviewed in court.
