sapsTimesLive reports that Police Minister Fikile Mbalula said on Tuesday that the country would have a new national police commissioner by the end of November.  

The SA Police Service (SAPS) has been without a substantive commissioner since Riah Phiyega was suspended in 2015.  Since then, a number of acting commissioners have taken charge only to be removed amid various allegations against them.  Mbalula also said he had instructed acting commissioner Lt-Gen Lesetja Mothiba to put the police strategic plan on hold until a national commissioner was appointed.  Mbalula stated that the appointment would be done as provided for in the Constitution.  The Presidency did not respond to questions about President Jacob Zuma’s plans for the police post on Tuesday.
