Inquiry on Phiyega's fitness to hold office begins tomorrow

The Claasen board of inquiry which was appointed by President Jacob Zuma to look into suspended General Riah Phiyega's leadership starts tomorrow.

President Jacob Zuma established the inquiry following the Farlam Commission of Inquiry's recommendations in the Marikana report.

The Claasen board of inquiry will primarily look into the suspended national police commissioner's conduct; and whether Phiyega and her senior managers had tried to conceal their involvement in the 2012 Marakana massacre.

Listen to Xolani Gwala speaking to Nia Nicholaides, EWN reporter for more on the story.

The hearings are expected to go on for about five to six weeks. This is primarily looking at Riah Phiyega's conduct and whether she is fit to hold office, and obviously this come from the Farlam Commission of Inquiry recommendations.

They will really be looking at whether the suspended national police commissioner had in fact mislead the Farlam Commission, whether her and her senior managers had tried to conceal the involvement in those deadly attacks in 2012.

Nia Nicholaides, EWN reporter

We know she was suspended last year by President Jacob Zuma. What will happen after this? We do know that she wants to take this matter to court, she wants the findings of the Farlam Commission against her to be set aside completely.
