sapuEWN reports that the SA Policing Union (Sapu) says it no longer has confidence in National Police Commissioner General Khehla Sitole's leadership and it has called for a board of inquiry into his fitness to hold office.  

Claiming that it was clear that Sitole “has lost the plot to give visionary leadership and direction to the SAPS” and that he was “thrown into the deep end”, the union said that as a responsible and professional organisation “we do not have a problem in swallowing our pride and acknowledge our initial support in his appointment was misplaced.”  Sapu made adverse reference to two particular matters, namely Sitole’s firing of a constable for allegedly assisting a cash-in-transit heist kingpin in Limpopo without any due processes having been followed and his ordering of the Gauteng provincial police commissioner to leave her position at the end of this month.
