sapu thumb medium80 79EWN reports that the South African Policing Union (Sapu) made an about turn and halted Thursday's planned strike pending a meeting with Police Minister Bheki Cele.  

The minister called for a briefing with union leaders and national Police Commissioner Khehla Sitole in Parktown for Thursday morning.  Officers have accused management of unfair treatment in respect of promotions.  Sapu president Mpho Kwinika commented that the strike would have crippled services if it had gone ahead.  "Last night I received a call from the Minister of Police.  We were invited to a media briefing today at 8am.  It was going to be very catastrophic.  Members were adamant that there was no other way of resolving the problem."
