hawksDispatchLive reports that the head of the Hawks in the Eastern Cape, Major-General Nyameko Nogwanya, has been stripped of all his powers and authority and is to face a disciplinary hearing for allegedly twice sexually harassing a female staff member.  

A letter of suspension signed by the acting national commander of the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigative Unit (Hawks), Lieutenant-General Yolisa Matakata,  states that all “powers and authority vested in [Nogwanya]…shall be held in abeyance” pending the outcome of a disciplinary process.  The suspension became effective from 25 July.  Nogwanya is accused of sexually harassing Hawks Eastern Cape spokeswoman Captain Anelisa Feni twice – once in his beachfront hotel room last year and a second time on the fourth floor of the Hawks offices in the East London CBD where Feni works.  Nogwanya has denied any wrongdoing and has alleged that Feni was being used in a smear campaign by people who wanted to see him fired.
